Carey Belcher, FNP, has joined Samaritan Palliative Care, a multidisciplinary team that supports patients with serious illness.
She earned a bachelor’s degree at Bradley University and a master’s degree at Indiana Wesleyan University.
A physician mentor encouraged Belcher to pursue becoming a nurse practitioner.
“I wanted to bring my nursing experience to a role as a provider within the specialties I love,” Belcher said.
She values care, compassion and honest communication.
“I believe that by connecting with people where they are, we are able to make a better impact,” Belcher said.
Belcher was impressed with Samaritan’s commitment to patients. She lived in the Midwest her entire life but has been visiting the Pacific Northwest since she was a child.
“My sourdough starter traveled here from Indiana, and I’m eager to begin baking again,” she said.
Belcher also enjoys hiking, reading and spending time with family in her free time.
She is accepting new patients and can be reached at 541-812-5020.
