Dr.Linda HalloranMSN, -DNPFamily Nurse Practitioner
Hi, my name is Linda Halloran. I am the mother of triplets, 3 sons and now the grandmother of 8 grandkids all boys! I also play the piano and love to golf. In addition to that I am a nurse and have been one since 1975. I have worked in about every hospital setting there is. Most of the time I have been in intensive care settings I started thinking of a different focus in my nursing career and that was to keep people out of the intensive care setting. I went back to school and got my Masters degree and Doctorate as a nurse practitioner. For the last 7 years I have been a nurse practitioner and educator for an online nursing program in Denver. My goal is to help people stay health especially those that do not have the ability to get to a doctor's office. I look forward to the opportunity to help you.
BrookeMSN-FNP, BCFamily Nurse Practitioner
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner and ENT specialist. I began my career as an ENT specialist, and then wanted to spend more time with the overall health of patients so I became a family care provider. I spent time as a Medical Director at a clinic in Phoenix helping an under-served population get access to quality medical care. I also worked for SCAN Health Plan doing HCC diagnosis and home assessments. After that I worked for Healthcare Partners doing house calls, and keeping very sick patients out of the hospital. I still do shifts at the clinic downtown, as well as precepting Nurse Practitioner students. I have had clinical experience with the VA Medical Center, Planned Parenthood, Hospice of the Valley, West Valley Pain Management, WJ Family Practice, and Desert Valley Pediatrics. I also worked at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center for 8 years with high risk pregnancies/premature babies, surgery, resource and in the acute trauma rehab. In addition, have spent time teaching nursing students as a clinical instructor for Gateway Community College. I am a lifetime student and plan on furthering my education in pursuit of a Doctorate or PhD. I try to attend every conference available to me that will compliment and expand my expertise, as I love to learn. I am originally from Winter Park, Colorado. I have a beautiful daughter Rori who is my pride joy. I also love animals, movies and traveling. I love what I do, and enjoy taking care of patients. Now as the CEO of IHMS I look forward to working with a group of exceptional people who love what they do as much as I do.
MiYoungMSN, FNP-CFamily Nurse Practitioner
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as a member of IHMS. I graduated with a Master of Science in Nursing and a FNP program at Grand Canyon University. Along with that, I have twenty-seven years of nursing experiences in various specialties, including Med-surg, Telemetry, Emergency, Psychiatrics, OB-GYn, Pain clinic, and Infusion unit with special procedures. I have worked with Dignity Health at Chandler Regional Medical Center for 10 years, and served in the Ambulatory Treatment Unit as the clinical supervisor. My nursing career originally started in South Korea in 1988. I believe that my background and nursing experiences are well established to serve the community where you need medical help.
The golden rule, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12), is the personal value that I live by. It especially applies to my attitude and determination to take care of all of my clients. Compassion, excellence, and stewardship have been my professional values as a primary provider and I expect these values to remain for the rest of my life.
I have realized the role of Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) as providing high quality primary and/or specialty medical care in ambulatory, acute and long-term care settings. I have had various experiences ranging from bedside care to management. I have teaching experiences at hospitals and a nursing school and I have been carrying leadership roles through the majority of experiences associated with excellent communication skills, mentoring, and demonstrating as an exemplar for patient and family centered care. I am confident to take care a variety of age groups and diseases, including most anything from simple treatment to complicated cancer patients care.
