Natalie C. Carter, DNP is a native of Utah. She found her passion for family medicine while working as a registered nurse, and during her time working in a nursing pool, she was exposed to several aspects of medicine, including women’s health, oncology, orthopedics, rehab and general surgery. She found a love for oncology and worked as a chemotherapy nurse for ten years, helping new physicians setup offices as well as treating patients. This was her first exposure to nurse practitioners, and she decided to pursue that as her career.
Natalie finished her bachelor of science degree at Utah Valley University, where she graduated magna cum laude. She continued her schooling at the University of Utah, where she received a doctorate degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2011. Her dissertation was developing a web-based exercise program for patients living in rural regions who suffer from chronic low back pain.
Natalie’s first nurse practitioner job was working in the specialty of gastroenterology. After two years, she decided the return to her roots in family medicine. Her interests include helping others who struggle with anxiety and depression. She has worked in a drug rehabilitation center where she also found a passion for helping those struggling with addiction. She believes each patient is unique and incorporates that into her practice.
Natalie recently relocated to Sandy where she is raising her two children.
