Meet Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Ieshia Kimble
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Ms. Kimble earned an undergraduate degree in language arts and studied abroad in Spain. Recognizing her innate desire to help people, especially those with challenging behavioral issues, she went on to complete a Master of Science degree in nursing at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science and became a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner.
Ms. Kimble takes a whole-person approach to patient care. She strives to develop a close relationship and strong bond with each patient.
“My goal is to partner with patients in their plan of care and help them be the best they can be as an individual,” Ms. Kimble explains. “What makes me smile is knowing I was able to help a person get through a tough time and feel and function better.”
On a mission to improve access to quality mental health care, Ms. Kimble also aims to end the stigma that’s inappropriately attached to mental health, emphasizing empowerment.
Communication, Collaboration, Teamwork
With a close-knit, multidisciplinary team and robust set of services, just about anyone seeking mental health care can find what they need at Connections Wellness Group Rockwall.
