“I try to quickly establish trustful relationships with patients because they deserve respect, and as providers, we are complete strangers to them initially. It takes patience because they often don’t know how their bodies work. It’s very rewarding to help someone who needs the help that we provide.”
Inessa is a family nurse practitioner at our Olathe Clinic. Patients of all ages benefit from her 12 years’ experience as a provider of acute and continuity care in primary, urgent care and hospital settings.
She speaks English, Russian and Ukrainian—having immigrated from Russia in 1994—and is certified by the American Nurses Association and the American Heart Association.
Inessa earned her associate degree in nursing from Park University and her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing from the UMKC School of Nursing. She earlier trained to become a licensed practical nurse, and before coming to the U.S., had a healthcare career in Moscow.
