Dr. Schelli O. McCabe is a podiatrist with the Foot and Ankle Clinic of St. Peter, Inc., a private practice in St. Peter, Minnesota.
Governor Tim Pawlenty reappointed Dr. Schelli McCabe to the Board of Podiatric Medicine to a four-year term that expires January 6, 2014. McCabe, of St. Peter, has been a licensed podiatrist in Minnesota since 1987 and a member of the Board since 2006. She is the daughter of M.D. Olmanson, MD, of St. Peter; granddaughter of Albert Fritsche, MD, of New Ulm, and E.G. Olmanson, MD of St. Peter; and great-granddaughter of Louis Albert Fritsche, MD – the first medical doctor to be licensed in Minnesota (license number 1 in the year 1887).
Dr. McCabe serves as chair of surgical services and president of the medical staff at River’s Edge Hospital and Clinic in St. Peter. McCabe graduated magna cum laude from the Dr. William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, IL. She completed her surgical residency at Metropolitan-Mount Sinai Hospital in Minneapolis.
McCabe’s interest in serving on the board traces to mentor Dr. Ann Rotrammel, one of the first woman podiatrists. Rotrammel was a lover of life, buying a Cadillac at age 95. She passed away at age 97.
Schelli lives with her husband and four sons in rural St. Peter, MN and enjoys hiking, horseback riding, skiing, attending school sporting events and spending time with her family.
