Hello, Everyone! My name is Kira, and I will be partnering with Dani in the Fall of 2020 at Phoenix Rising Family Medicine.
I have been an intensive care unit nurse for almost ten years doing and seeing things I will never forget. As a bedside nurse, resource nurse, and rapid response nurse, I saw firsthand how chronic disease and lifestyle choices affect patients and their families. Fascinated by the human body, the passion to advocate for my patients, and the unrelenting desire to make a difference, I knew I had to take my career beyond the bedside. My experience, coupled with my passion, have brought me right where I want to be: side by side with my dear friend and mentor, Dani.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Oregon Health and Science University. I also have a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon where I majored in Human Physiology. In the summer of 2020, I will achieve my Master’s degree in Family Nursing Practice from Gonzaga University.
Throughout this time, not only has my education and experience expanded, but so has my family. My husband, Beau, and my girls, Scarlett and Shyla, are my greatest motivation for making this transition. I am so thrilled to join Dani and I cannot wait to get to know you and provide exceptional care to your entire family. See you all soon!
KIRA WILL BE ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS FALL 2020!
