Nice to Meet You
Hi, my name is Deanna, and I am your ADVENT Nurse Practitioner. First, a little about me…I have always had a passion for helping people, so medicine was always my dream career. As a former ENT patient, I can genuinely understand how proper breathing through my nose impacts my daily life. I want my patients to feel the relief and happiness I felt when I finally had my issues resolved.
My philosophy is simple: I treat my patients the same way I’d treat a family member. Seeking medical care can be daunting and even frustrating; I hope to ease your anxieties by guiding you every step of the way. You can expect individualized treatment and to feel heard, comfortable, and involved in creating a treatment plan that is uniquely best for you.

More About Me
Outside the clinic, you can find me drinking iced coffee, reading, baking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. If I didn’t work in medicine, I would love to open my own coffee shop. I used to work as a barista, where I found my love for coffee. I come from a big, loud Italian family, and when I had the opportunity to travel to Italy, I had gelato every single day (surprisingly, my favorite flavor was Tiramisu).
I look forward to leading you on your patient journey at ADVENT.
