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.
When her time allows it, Elizabeth enjoys kayaking, spending time with her family, experimenting with new recipes, and reading. She also enjoys swimming and workouts at the YMCA. Happily married, she and her husband have four children between them. They live in Mooresboro, North Carolina.
