Family Medicine

Josh’s History

Nikki Vernelli ARNP
Medical School:
Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine

Philosophy of Care:
I believe that my role is a collaborative one. I am committed to working with my patients as a whole person, incorporating body, mind, and soul in achieving the type of health and life they desire. I enjoy working with people to live life on their terms. I work to give them tools in their office visits that help them meet the challenges they face outside the office.

Medical Interests:
Geriatrics, Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT), LGBTQ Care, Veteran Care, Hospice, Palliative Care, Full Spectrum Primary and Preventative Care, and Underserved Care.

Personal Interests/Hobbies:
I enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking, wine/beer tasting, science fiction, and target shooting.
What drew you to CHCW:
I was drawn to Yakima by the 300+ days of sun, amazing beer, wine, and produce. I found a caring and collaborative community at PNWU and again at CWFM. I love the people in the area and the opportunity to practice full-spectrum family medicine.
