Ashley Gilland, MSN, FNP-BC, a family medicine nurse practitioner, will join FamilyHealth Medical Clinic December 1.
She will see a full range of patients of all ages. Her areas of professional interest include preventive medicine, women’s health and management of chronic diseases.
Healthcare has long been her calling. Prior to coming to FamilyHealth, Ashley spent nine years in nursing. She has worked in a variety of settings, including surgery centers, inpatient settings and home health.
Ashley has always been fascinated by the physiology of the human body. The advanced training as a nurse practitioner allows her to do more diagnostics work and problem-solving.
Her practice will revolve around preventive and maintenance care. She said she will promote vaccinations, regular screenings and healthy lifestyles. For those with chronic conditions, she will work to prevent further complications.
And she practices what she preaches. Ashley leads an active life that keeps her moving and being mindful of a healthy diet.
“I try to be active and live a healthy lifestyle,” she said, “and I want to share those goals with others.”
