MEET TERESA BROWN-SANCHEZ, NURSE PRACTITIONER

Teresa Brown-Sanchez is a nurse practitioner at the Southwest School-Based Health Clinic at Montezuma-Cortez High School. Teresa completed her undergraduate at Washburn University and her advanced training at University of Nebraska Medical Center. Teresa provides care for students at the School-Based Health Center. Teresa believes in the vision of the clinic, that health and academic outcomes for kids are no longer predicted by circumstances.

Teresa’s interests include stained glass, hiking, boating, and taking family adventures.

“My care philosophy is to provide the patient with the most comprehensive detailed map, with recommended routes, to get the patient to their health goals and then (accept/redirect/support) the patient if they choose a different route. As a nurse practitioner I strive to listen to the patient and hear what they expect from a visit rather than focusing on my health care provider agenda. I feel that with this listening approach I have uncovered many underlying problems for the patient.”
