She has done rotations at Great Works Family Practice in York, Maine, at Wolfeboro Pediatrics in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, at Asthma & Allergy Associates of Maine in Portland, and at Maine Medical Partners Orthopedics in Falmouth. She has also practiced at Family Healthcare Associates in Auburn, Maine, and at Raymond Redicare in Raymond, Maine. We are happy to have her join our team of experienced healthcare professionals.

Whitney joins our team of now five primary care providers, including Dr. Allan "Chip" Teel, family nurse practitioner Susan Lord, psychiatric family nurse practitioner Jennie McNeil, and physician's assistant Andrew Zuber.

The Health Center also welcomes Elizabeth Ham as a health coordinator/medical assistant for the summer months to join the continuous care team of Kandace Zuber, nurse care manager; Rebecca Alley, senior health coordinator and safety officer; and Jessica Benson, health coordinator.
