Are you sick of being single? Do you need a person to fill the hole in your heart? You could try out a dating app like Match.com or Tinder but, if you live near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, you might have better luck relying on Heather Polan Berken.
Berken is a nurse at Aurora Health Care who takes care of people in more ways than one. She loves getting to know both patients and co-workers alike. Most people would call her “extroverted” or “friendly” but she puts it in less flattering terms.
“I’m inappropriate. I meddle in people’s lives,” Berken told Fox 6 Now.
Yet she’s been meddling for all of the right reasons.
“If I meet someone and they’re kind and then I find out that they’re single, I’m like ‘You’re awesome! You should be with someone.'”
Berken isn’t just pairing people together haphazardly though. She instinctively knows who would make a good couple and those instincts have led her to 11 successful matches: Six marriages and five long-term relationships. Yet she doesn’t do it all by herself. She receives help from her husband, Aaron, a lieutenant for the Milwaukee Police.
