A registered nurse and Family Nurse Practitioner, Elaine has been in nursing for 22 years. She loves working with the patients at GMA, and is inspired by their courage and perseverance. She feels fortunate to work with providers who think outside the box, and have alternative ways of approaching illness. She works in both the Santa Rosa and the San Rafael IV rooms. In her spare time, Elaine enjoys hiking, backpacking, reading, cooking and gardening. She lives in Sonoma with her husband and son, surrounded by nature.
