Coopers Mills, Whitefield – This February, staff at Sheepscot Valley Health Center are happy to welcome Brooke Perez, Physician Assistant, to the team.

Brooke earned her Master’s degree in Physician Assisting from Trevecca Nazarene University of Tennessee. Previously, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Pre-Medicine from the Eastern Nazarene College of Massachusetts. Brooke draws from a solid background in rural medicine and urgent care, along with experience in local inpatient facilities.

Brooke shares, “I am thrilled to transition into family practice, and to have the opportunity to blend my existing knowledge of orthopedics and inpatient medicine to provide high-quality healthcare for the whole family. Collaborating with my patients to help them reach their health goals is very important to me. I am excited to contribute to a healthier community here in Central Maine”.

Brooke joins physicians Ann Schwink and Kathryn Wistar; physician assistants Anna Simmler, Craig Urwin, and Zachary Wissman; and psychiatric nurse practitioner Nancy Glover. Our clinicians offer medical and behavioral health services for patients of all ages.
