Nurse Practitioner, an advanced practice degree for primary care providers who complete master’s-level training and board certification and who practice medicine independently. Related degrees include ANP (Adult Nurse Practitioner), FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner), WHNP (Women's Health Nurse Practitioner), and APNP (Advance Practice Nurse Practitioner).
I have been fortunate to provide medical care in many different countries as a volunteer certified registered nurse practitioner. For me, this solidified the importance of incorporating a person's culture and values into their wellness plan. I practice in a holistic fashion, treating the entire person rather than their diagnosis alone. I look to honor my patients' culture, preferences, and values while also providing thorough medical care.
How I stay healthy and happy
I like to cook, play piano, and work in my backyard greenhouse. I volunteer abroad at least yearly, most often in refugee camps or settlements through the Red Cross.
