From an early age, Brianne Hettema, PA-C has always known she wanted to be in healthcare. Having a robust background in emergency medicine and a deep passion for family practice, she is going to be an outstanding fit for Sound Family Medicine walk-in clinics.
When working in emergency medicine, she learned the importance of taking her time with each patient and how to create a calm and relaxing environment, no matter the situation. Carrying that experience with her, she always tries to make sure each patient feels safe and heard by establishing a solid relationship with them.
During PA school, Brianne was on the board for the Mobile health unit in community medicine and feels passionately about helping bring health care access to the homeless population. Outside of medicine, Brienne enjoys spending time with her family, including her sweet big hound dog, and her young daughter. Her and her husband enjoy film photography and capturing as much beauty the PNW has to offer as they can.
