I’m an avid reader and have developed a love of gardening. I love being outside as much as possible, especially during our wonderful summers and snowy winters. Outdoor activities that I enjoy include running, hiking, camping, backpacking, snow-shoeing, and downhill skiing.

When Meghan was asked “Why do you want to work for CHCW?” She replied. “My passion as a nurse has always been pediatrics and this has continued during my education to become a nurse practitioner. After my pediatric rotation at Yakima Pediatrics I knew that I wanted to continuing serving the pediatric population there. The philosophy and mission of CHCW and its service to the Yakima community made it a place that I wanted to work at.”


Meghan aspires to….

I aspire to give back to my community, family and friends.
