Michele Cathey-Hamley, Family Nurse Practitioner

 
Michele Cathey-Hamley, Nurse — Gynecological Care in Portland, OR
 
Michele provides skilled preventative and diagnostic gynecological and primary care. She is welcoming new patients.
Michele Cathey-Hamley, FNP, received her Bachelors of Science in Environmental Planning from the University of Oregon in 1990. After spending 2 years in the rain forests of The Congo building fish ponds and teaching integrative agriculture, she returned home with a deep sense of the connection between environmental health and human health and felt the need to impact both. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Masters of Nursing and Family Nurse Practitioner program at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee in 1997. Michele has cared for people and their families in a variety of settings: family practice, emergency medicine, house call practice and most recently hospice and palliative care.
 
“I value listening to a persons' story, to understand how their physical and emotional health has been impacted. I value working with people to empower them to be the best physically and emotionally that they can be while providing them the best health care possible and the most up to date research.” My work with hospice patients and their families taught me to ask more questions to seek deeper understanding and to work in partnership with patients. My work in emergency medicine taught me when it was appropriate to be the one making the decisions. In the end my practice is one of balance… something we could all use a little more of!
Michele has two teenage boys that keep her running. She loves to watch her boys play Rugby! She enjoys backpacking, skiing, fly fishing and most of all “dirt therapy” (extreme gardening). She travels often and volunteers her extra time teaching community health workers in Kenya and South Sudan. “As I have matured (laugh and snort) I find creating healthy communities is one of my number one priorities, I think we do this best around good food… we all have to eat!”
