Albion – This August, staff of the Lovejoy Health Center are happy to welcome Serenity L. Barlett, APRN, MSN, FNP-C, to their professional healthcare team.
Barlett earned her Master’s degree, Family Nurse Practitioner, from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Previously, she earned both an Associate’s degree in Nursing, and Bachelor of Science in Nursing, from Columbia College of Columbia, MO. Barlett’s wealth of nursing experience includes time spent in both Maine and Missouri, giving her a diverse and unique care background.
Barlett shares, “I strive to provide a caring environment for my patients while focusing on healthier living – physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. True health isn’t just about the quantity of our lives, but the quality of our lives. Theodore Roosevelt stated it best when he said, ‘People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care’!”
Barlett joins the existing Lovejoy clinical team in Albion – Doctors, Ann Schwink, Dean Chamberlain, and Daniel Keane; Physician Assistant, Nichole Johnston; Nurse Practitioners, Michelle Breene, Keiko Kurita, and Melanie Morin; Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Ashley Rancourt; and Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Deborah Daigle.
