NEWS from The Corvallis Clinic
Prior to joining The Clinic, Ms. Feral practiced at Appalachian Wellness in Campton, KY, Ohio Valley Physicians in various eastern Kentucky locations, and at United Clinics of Kentucky in Campton, KY.
Ms. Feral was drawn to immediate care medicine because of the variety of skills needed. “It allows me to be a multifaceted provider so I may reach a wide spectrum of the patient population. I also have some holistic healing knowledge in herbalism and Ayurveda, and I happily offer suggestions when applicable.”
Certified by the American Nurse Credentialing Center, Ms. Feral earned a Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner in 2011 and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2009 from the University of Cincinnati. She earned her initial bachelor’s degree in philosophy and environmental studies in 2001, but a desire to have her life’s work centered on helping to ease suffering spurred her to become a nurse practitioner.
“It allows me to relate to people in basic, human terms. We are all vulnerable to illness, trauma, and mental distress no matter our age, economic background, or social standing. I appreciate the value of human fragility and resilience.”
Outside of work, Ms. Feral enjoys “exploring ways to be as self-sustainable as possible, through gardening and utilizing resources as locally as possible.” She has two cats, LeeRoy and Piper.
