Kathy Tissington, NP:MN
Kathy completed her Bachelor of Nursing with Distinction in 2000 from the University of Calgary. She then practiced in the Emergency Department where an interest in prevention started to grow. Seeing patients present in a health crisis became frustrating and she decided to pursue becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
She graduated from Athabasca University with her Masters in Advanced Nursing Practice in 2010 as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She has been practicing in the Primary Care setting ever since. She has also worked in research, education, women’s health, Geriatrics, and Pediatrics. She has a love for learning. Her growing interest in preventative and anti-aging medicine has led her to seek additional and ongoing education in this specialty area.
Kathy has a love for preventative medicine. Her goal with patients is to address the underlying cause of their health problems, moving away from just focusing on treating symptoms. She recognizes the uniqueness of each patient, taking a personalized approach to health. She looks at the link between lifestyle factors and health and wellbeing.
