Katy Palmer, ARNP
Nursing has been in my blood since my teen years. I was fascinated with human anatomy and physiology so I spent time shadowing a nurse to learn more. After a short mission trip, I was convinced that nursing was the most practical way to help people. I chose family practice because I love the variety that each stage of life has to offer. One of my greatest joys comes from teaching patients how to care for themselves and their families. I believe education is key in deciding on a plan of care and I strongly promote prevention measures like screening tests and vaccinations. My goal is to cultivate respectful relationships with good, clear communication. I am committed to building a strong, healthy community right here in my own neighborhood.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Hawaii Pacific University and then spent the next 9 years in hospital, outpatient and emergency settings. I decided to step up my nursing scope of practice and went back to school to earn my Master of Science in Nursing from Concordia University Wisconsin. I am now board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
I refresh my life by attending church, spending time with family and friends, gardening, cooking and learning new things. I grew up on an island in Alaska so the great outdoors is a big part of me. Spring and summers offer such beautiful hiking and camping spots here in Washington. Get out there and enjoy!
