Whitney Herfindahl, RN
Whitney grew up in a small-town in rural northern California, which instilled in her the value of community and a desire to serve others. This experience, coupled with her early interest in medicine, led her to pursue a career as a healthcare provider. In 2006 she began her medical career with the ambulance company in her hometown, where she worked as an Emergency Medical Technician while pursuing her undergraduate degree. This experience solidified her passion for medicine, and lead her to a career in nursing.
She graduated from nursing school in 2012, continuing her journey in emergency medicine as an Emergency Room nurse. While she has spent the majority of her career working in the ER, she has also had the opportunity to work as a nurse in pediatric, post-partum, and neonatal intensive care units. This breadth of experience has given her the opportunity to serve patients of all ages, often in their most vulnerable times of need.
As a nurse, she strives to provide personalized and compassionate care to the patients and families in her care. Her goal is to meet her patients’ immediate and long-term health care needs by providing the type of attentive and thoughtful care she would expect for herself and her family.
