Kathleen Clark, APRN, FNP-C

“Throughout my 26 years in healthcare, I have learned the value in listening and building rapport with patients.  As a primary care provider, I have the opportunity to promote wellness and provide evidenced-based care for all my patients throughout their lifespan.  I will be seeking out additional education on women’s health and wellness to improve access for women within the area, including placement and management of Long-Acting Removable Contraceptives (LARC’s).

One experience in my healthcare career that I will remember for a lifetime is the 3 months I voluntarily worked away from home last December. I accepted a travel position to work at the UMASS COVID field hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts. This was a temporary 220-bed hospital constructed inside the DCU arena by the National Guard which maintained constant negative pressure for the treatment of patients with COVID-19.  I am grateful for the opportunity to provide care and support to patients through their fight against the COVID-19 virus while working alongside some amazing providers from all over the United States.

My husband and I live on a small farm in Brattleboro, VT with pet goats, ducks and chickens. I enjoy horseback riding and hikes with husband and our dogs. A fun fact about me is I have a passion for rocks of all sizes, especially heart-shaped rocks! In the summer months, I enjoy spending time in my brook building dams, retaining walls, garden beds and walkways with the rocks.”
