Anne is originally from Miami, FL and was primarily raised in Nashville, TN. She completed her Bachelor of Art in History at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and then earned her Master’s Degree in Nursing at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing in 2014. She is a licensed and board-certified family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. She focuses on treating children through adults and is drawn to working with women.
She specializes in anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD and bipolar disorder. She has additional experience with treating dual diagnoses, schizophrenia, and various psychotic disorders both in the outpatient and inpatient settings. She approaches treatment through holistic care, supportive therapy and traditional medicine that includes a focus on evidenced based practice. Her technique focuses on individualizing treatment goals and plans to support overall health and wellbeing. She strongly values developing rapport with those she treats and aims to understand the person and not simply the diagnosis.
Anne has 7 years of experience working as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She has experience working in different outpatient settings to include community mental health, inpatient, working with women who are incarcerated and most recently in Private Practice.
Prior to working as a PMHNP, Anne worked in various industries to include sales, customer service and restaurants. She has always carried a strong desire to work with and help others. In 2010, she made the decision to change her career direction and began working as a Research Assistant at Vanderbilt Adult Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic. During this time, she was mentored by various Psychiatrists and Nurse Practitioners and discovered the path she wanted to take to reach her goals of providing service to others.
Anne lives in Portland with her 2 mischievous cats, Sebastian and Oliver. When Anne is not working, she loves spending time with her friends, cooking, baking, exploring Oregon, traveling, hiking and skiing. She admittedly watches too much reality television. Anne’s favorite part about living in the PNW is being so close to the coast and the mountains and truly believes she has the best of both worlds!
