Cristy Palmer is a board-certified nurse practitioner who has a strong passion for working with those who struggle with their mental health. She started her medical career working in radiology but wanted a deeper connection with her patients. She completed her Registered Nursing Degree in 2014 and went on to complete her Masters in Nursing in 2020. While pursuing her Masters, she spent her clinic time in rural areas in Georgia helping those with limited access to healthcare. During her training, she felt a deep connection to those who were in need of mental health care and quickly knew what her focus would be. In her free time, you can find her sitting on the porch swing listening to the trains pass by or at the gym lifting heavy to relieve that mental stress.
What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversation about illnesses that affect not only individuals, but their families as well. - Glenn Close
