Michele Cathey, FNP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 23 years of experience
My primary care philosophy is to approach patients with respectful curiosity, engage in active listening and develop the trust needed to create a meaningful partnership. Through this partnership I can provide the guidance and expertise needed to support optimal health and wellness. I believe that to be my best professionally I have to practice what I teach, work hard, play hard and laugh a lot. I spend most of my time outdoors on a bike, or with my hands in the dirt. I am passionate about creating community, being a good steward of the earth and spending time with my wife, our two boys and two dogs
