Sandy Schilling received her BSN from the Intercollegiate College of Nursing Education (ICNE) in 1990, and has practiced nursing for over 25 years, first as a pediatric nurse, then as a home care nurse until she received her MSN from Gonzaga University in 1998 as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). Sandy has practiced in mostly underserved community health settings with low income and culturally diverse populations, in both rural and urban clinics. She has worked extensively with mental health, chemical dependency, and diabetes in addition to general primary care. She continues to provide health care at Spokane Community College Student Health Clinic and Frontier Behavioral Health. Sandy is interested in the relationship of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to adult health outcomes. She is an advocate for prevention, recognition, and treatment of mind-body illness, and promotes healing through self-awareness and connection. She will complete her DNP at Gonzaga University in May 2017. Her project "Trauma Informed Care: Screening Adults for ACEs" focuses on educating healthcare providers about ACEs, and encouraging ACEs screening in primary care.
