Personal Interests

Dr. Kuhl is originally from Waukesha, WI, and his wife is from Yankton, SD. They chose Central Minnesota to raise their family because St. Cloud is almost half way between both sets of grandparents! Dr. Kuhl enjoys tennis, golf and spending time with his family. They are active members of the Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell. And since he was born in Wisconsin, he is a Packer shareholder, but please don’t hold that against him!
