Kristen Thatcher, ARNP

Family Nurse Practitioner

Why did you choose to become a nurse/nurse practitioner?
I truly enjoy working as a primary care provider. My mother is a nurse and I remember her working hard to further her career in nursing by going back to school when I was young. She has always loved being a nurse. So when it was time for me to decide what I wanted to do for a career, I decided to become a nurse in the hope that I would enjoy the profession as much as my mother. It was a good decision.
When I graduated from my Masters in Nursing Science / Family Nurse Practitioner program, my search for a position brought me back to the area to become a member of the SMC family.
Hobbies/Interests
I love spending time with my family, reading a good book, crafts and watching movies.
