The Doctors


Susan Daniels, MD

Everyone at Hatch Pediatrics is centered on service to patients and families. We are here to provide your child and your family with the tools and information you need to build life-long healthy habits, right from the start.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to children, from babies to teens, based on evidence-based medicine. We're always learning the latest, and pairing that with years of experience, and close partnerships with pediatric sub-specialist, to be sure that we can help, no matter what concerns you have about your child.

We also never forget to have fun while we do our work. Even when our patients are sick, we mirror the cheerfulness that is part of childhood. We each try to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible, and kindness and humor are part of our recipe.

I was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. I've always loved being around kids! When I moved to Minnesota to go to college, I volunteered in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as a "Mother Goose" holding premature infants, and then as a Child Family Life volunteer in the pediatric cancer unit. I went to medical school at the University of Minnesota and thought I would choose OB/Gyn, but every time a baby was born, that's where I wanted to be. I completed my pediatric residency training at the University of Minnesota in 2002, and moved to Montana in 2007 to live closer to my family.

When I'm not in the office, my favorite thing in the world is to spend time with my family; my husband, our college-age son and teenage daughter, my mom and dad, brothers, nieces and nephews who all live nearby. We spend our time hiking, swimming, biking, playing cards, taking photos, cooking, crafting, and eating. Nothing matters more to me than my family, and I know the same is true for every parent that brings a child to Hatch Pediatrics. I look forward to partnering with each of you to improve the health and wellbeing of your family.

I'm very excited to be a part of Hatch Pediatrics. For me, this is the perfect atmosphere to care for children of all ages and their families. I believe in a team approach, where the child and family are active participants in their medical care.

I grew up in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota and received an undergraduate degree in Psychology from North Dakota State University. I attended medical school at the University of Minnesota where my love of Pediatrics was fostered. As a young adult, I loved working with children and did a lot of volunteer work at the Children's Hospitals. I completed my Pediatric training at the University of Minnesota as well.

I spent the first 13 years of practice in a multi-specialty physician group in Brainerd, Minnesota. Brainerd is a small resort community in central Minnesota. Being a pediatrician is everything I hoped it would be. I truly enjoy watching my patients and their families grow. I'm continuously amazed at the resiliency of young people when faced with challenges. I love feeling like I'm part of the family and contributing to the successes of young people in the community.

I met and married my wife Holly in medical school and we have two children, Dylan and Ava. We made two road trips to the western United Stated and fell in love with the mountains of Montana and the gracious and friendly people. When it was time for a change, Montana was an easy choice for us.

I love spending time with my family, being active and exploring new adventures. We love to hike, bike, fish and camp. We love to travel and experience new places and people. I love sports of all kinds and true to my Minnesota upbringing, hockey is my favorite.

I'm honored and humbled by the trust my patients and their families place in me and I work diligently everyday to maintain and build that trust. I look forward to working with you as one part of the team, striving to raise healthy and successful young men and women.

I moved to Bozeman with my husband and our three young children in the summer of 2019, to pursue a dream. We loved Montana since the moment we first stepped foot in the state, and knew this was the perfect environment to raise our family. We love getting out together as a family, on the ski slopes, hiking trails, or even just enjoying a meal in our backyard. But more importantly, we love the people and community here. As a pediatrician, I am so honored to be a part of this community, to get to know the families here on an intimate basis, and to share my knowledge with them. I view my job as a partnership with our families, and love working as a team to make our children the best and healthiest they can be.

While the mountains are now my home, I spent my formative years on the east coast. I grew up in West Hartford, Connecticut and then went onto Dartmouth College before returning to CT for medical school at the University of Connecticut. In my off-time, I was a babysitter and nanny to many families. As I rotated through different medical specialties in my training, I always gravitated back to pediatrics. So it was no surprise to anyone who knows me well that I chose pediatrics. I traveled south to Duke University for residency. Then, before moving to Bozeman, I spent 4 years working at Seattle Children's Hospital at their very busy Urgent Care centers, caring for children of all ages and medical complexities.

While I have moved around quite a bit, I am thrilled to finally call Bozeman and Hatch my home.

The Staff


Brandi McWalter, Clinical Nurse Manager

I'm a Licensed Practical Nurse and the Clinical Nurse Manager at Hatch Pediatrics. I have been a pediatric nurse for 15 years and I love it! I like being silly with kids and also being able to quickly draw blood and perform other procedures to make a visit easier for a patient. I'm originally from South Carolina. I have two wonderful kiddos and they keep me quite busy. When I am not working, I'm spending my time cheering on the Gamecocks, watching Madi cheer, or watching JD do some form of tumbling and gymnastics. And we just added two cats to the family!


Breeanna Micech, Lead Medical Assistant

I was born and raised here in Bozeman, MT. I started at MSU Gallatin College in 2014 and graduated in 2017 as a Registered Medical Assistant. My hobbies include drawing, painting, and photography. When not at work I enjoy spending time with family/friends and exploring the great outdoors with my two pups either hiking or camping. I am thrilled to be a part of the team at Hatch Pediatrics and work hard to provide the best medical care possible for the children of our community.


Marc Daniels, Business Office Manager

I'm the business office manager for Hatch Pediatrics. My primary role is to oversee daily financial matters for the practice, but you might frequently see me around the clinic taking care of maintenance tasks or helping out wherever I'm needed.

I'm from Cannon Falls, MN. I'm married to Dr Daniels and have two children, Henry and Nora. I graduated from the University of Minnesota (where I met my wife!). For 20 + years I was employed as an Environmental Engineer for the University of Minnesota, Ford Motor Company and my own business. In 2007, we were fortunate to have an opportunity to move to Bozeman.

In my free time I love spending time with my family playing games, hiking, biking, cooking, traveling and taking care of our menagerie of pets and chickens.
