Andrea Garey has a passion for serving others and educating her patients about the best way to treat illness and promote health.
She previously worked as a hospice nurse for Hospice of North Idaho for 10 ½ years. This experience inspired her to return to school to continue serving others in a greater capacity.
Andrea has a doctorate in Nursing Practice with a focus on Family Nurse Practitioner from Gonzaga University. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree with a nursing focus from Boise State University and an Associate of Science degree with a nursing focus from North Idaho College.
Andrea saw many disparities in the healthcare system while working as a nurse. She believes in being supportive of patients in their healthcare journey.
“I view my role as a provider as supportive by coming alongside patients, providing information and options to them, but ultimately allowing them to make their own healthcare decisions,” said Andrea.
Andrea and her husband are raising their children in North Idaho. She loves tending her rose garden, which provides her with a sense of peace, calm and contentment.
