Joni was born in Durango, but she grew up in Aztec, NM. She lives outside of Creede with her husband and three young daughters. She is a Certified Diabetic Educator and takes particular interest in diabetes as she is a Type I diabetic herself. Besides working in the Creede Clinic, Joni is involved in the Creede area as the Medical Director for Creede School District and is also the Mineral County Public Health Nurse. She became a provider to make a difference and to be able to serve her community and is certainly living that out. If she is not at work, you can find her with her family, 6 horses, 1 dog, 4 cats and flock of chickens – or she might be reading a good novel.
Joni received her BSN from Caroll College in Helena, MT and achieved her FNP from University of Colorado.
