Stefanie Aring is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She previously worked as an ICU nurse for 5 years, and has loved the transition into primary care. She enjoys being able to positively impact patient’s lives and help them become healthier by empowering her patients with courage and knowledge. She particularly enjoys pediatric patients, patients with anxiety and/or depression, and patients with GI concerns. She is currently studying functional medicine and loves everything she is learning to get to the root cause of dis-ease. She approaches patients as a whole and tries to get to the bottom of their diseases, rather than focusing on individual parts. She believes it is vital to work with patients to come up with a plan that is achievable for them and appreciates that medicine is unique to each person, and that there is not a one size fits all when it comes to treating various ailments.
Stefanie is Board Certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She obtained her Masters of Science in Nursing at The University of South Alabama and her B.S. in Nursing at Seattle University. When Stefanie is not working, she enjoys anything outdoors, sports, and traveling. She plays on several soccer teams and gets out hiking, camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, etc., almost every weekend with her husband and rambunctious dog. She has traveled to over 30 countries and hopes to travel to at least 30 more! She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and trying to come up with new, delicious recipes.
