Nikki Vernelli ARNP
Medical School:
Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine

Philosophy of Care:
My philosophy of care is to provide patients with holistic care to the best of my ability, so that they are empowered to live rich fulfilling lives. I believe that full spectrum primary care is the cornerstone for health.

Medical Interests:
I am especially interested in rural medicine, women’s healthcare, obstetrics, and pediatrics.

Personal Interests/Hobbies:
I have a love of animals and enjoy spending time with my dog as well as horseback riding. I also enjoy baking treats to share with my family and friends and cooking with fresh vegetables from my husband’s garden.
What drew you to CHCW:
I have lived in Eastern Washington my entire live and being able to train at home close to family and where I want to practice was one of my top priorities. I was also drawn to the program’s mission to serve the underserved with full spectrum care and the large Hispanic population.
