Dr. Broadhead has been in healthcare for over 25 years. Her initial interest in medicine began with her management of dental and medical practices throughout the Northwest. Over time, she was given the opportunity to develop many clinical skills in different areas and decided she wanted to focus her education and training on treating patients.
After completing a BS from BYU in Psychology, she returned to school later to receive her RN licensure and then a BSN from the University of Utah. She graduated with her Doctor of Nursing Practice from Idaho State in the spring of 2017 and is board certified in family practice from the ANCC.
She has 10 years of experience in nursing and nursing practice in the areas of acute, urgent, intensive and emergent care as well as primary care, functional medicine, and psychiatric nursing. She has also been an adjunct professor for several different nursing colleges in the Salt Lake area.
Dr. Broadhead believes that mental and physical health are not two separate fields of medicine, but two parts comprising a greater whole. Each part is dependent on the other for overall wellness and improved quality of life.
She enjoys traveling, hiking, all kinds of outdoor activities, music and reading, and spending time with her husband and combined family of 9 children.
