We first met Annie during a 4-month clinical rotation this last Winter. We found that she has a contagious, joyful spirit, and our patients and staff quickly fell in love with her. She is also incredibly intelligent and has broad experience, including neonatal and obstetric care, university clinical instructor, neonatal resuscitation program instructor, clinical educator, and clinical management.
Annie and her husband Steve live in Roslyn, though they come to Ellensburg frequently. They love Ellensburg, and Daily Bread is Annie's favorite to gather baking ingredients. Annie grew up in the Tacoma area and Steve is from Zillah. They have 2 grown children. Jory is currently living abroad in Costa Rica. Halle lives in Cle Elum and works as a medical assistant. They also have two Australian Shepherds, Tess and Lily.
Annie enjoys running or walking the beautiful landscape near her home with her dogs, incorporating a daily mindfulness/breathing practice, and baking/cooking with her sourdough starter. Her family loves the sourdough pizza dough she makes.
Annie completed a Family Nurse Practitioner program at the Frontier Nursing University in Kentucky. While Annie cares for patients of all ages, her experience in women's health and pediatrics is especially valuable. Everyone here at CompassDirect absolutely loves Annie and we are excited to have her on our team!
