SEQUIM – Tracy Zaher-Lee, ARNP, recently joined Olympic Medical Physicians Specialty Clinic in Sequim, providing clinical support, treatment strategies and patient education in the area of cardiology. She will work directly with clinic cardiologists in providing patient care.
Zaher-Lee, certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center, received her Master of Nursing, Adult Nurse Practitioner Program, at University of Washington in 2011. Upon earning her ARNP license, she worked with Kitsap Cardiology before joining Olympic Medical Physicians. She also spent 10 years providing professional nursing care at Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend.
“Tracy is a welcome addition to our practice and offers relevant expertise to assist our cardiologists in caring for our heart patients,” says Holly Wickersham, operations manager, OMP Specialty Clinic – Sequim. “Her knowledge of health literacy and passion for educating patients will be of tremendous benefit.”
Zaher-Lee enjoys getting to know her patients and working collaboratively with them to develop a treatment plan that they can be successful at implementing. “I like to empower patients to play an active role in their own health care, particularly in regard to adopting and maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle. Ultimately it makes them feel better and more able to do the things they want to do.”
