Having always wanted to become a nurse, it wasn’t until she was at a crossroads in her life that Andrea finally decided to take the leap and become a licensed vocational nurse. She knew that she wanted to keep learning and keep going so she continued her education, ultimately becoming a registered nurse. From there, she went on to accomplish her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner.

A family nurse practitioner (FNP) is an advanced practice registered nurse who works autonomously or in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to deliver family-focused care. Given the rather broad nature of the “family” patient population focus, FNPs offer a wide range of healthcare services that revolve around the family unit; from health promotion and disease prevention to direct care and counseling across the lifespan. Andrea strives to make a difference in the lives of her patients by providing them with the highest quality of care.
