Angel Yackel

Assistant Director of Student Health and Counseling / Nurse Practitioner, Student Health and Counseling


Angel is a born and raised Minnesotan who officially made Northfield her home in 2019. She has had brief stints living elsewhere, including a semester in Rome and a year in Tucson. She spent her early days of her nursing career working in public health settings, where she found a passion for health education and empowering patients to take control of their health and wellbeing. She’s been a nurse practitioner since 2015, and worked in urgent care and family practice settings prior to joining the team at Carleton Student Health and Counseling in 2018.

Angel has a passion for college health which was nurtured by her own visits to Gustavus Health Services during undergrad. She recognizes the unique challenges Carleton students face in navigating all aspects of their health while also keeping up with a rigorous academic calendar and other extracurricular activities. It is her passion to meet students where they are at and walk alongside them as they learn more about maintaining wellness, managing illnesses, and navigating the healthcare system. Angel has special interests in sexual health and wellness, gender affirming care, and the care of students with eating disorders, however she sees students for any range of health concerns or questions.
