In 2015, Liz and her family moved to Pullman for her husband’s career. Liz heard about WISH Medical from friends at church, and she has always wanted to use her nursing skills for ministry. When an opportunity came along for her to join WISH Medical, she leapt at the chance to become part of the team. She loves the ministry provided to the clients through advocacy and medical services.

LeAnn became part of our WISH Medical team in 2014 as we continued to expand our medical clinic to serve the Palouse. She has a vast array of experience and knowledge in coordinating care in a medical office setting.
LeAnn was born and raised in Moscow, Idaho. She obtained her nursing license in 1993 after attending North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, ID. She has over 20 years of experience in nursing ranging from interaction with people of all ages in a family practice office to caring for the elderly in long term care facilities.
LeAnn has worked for two of the past medical directors of the Center in their private practice settings. The doctors she had worked with had told her that she would be a welcome asset at the Center and would serve the community well. When the opportunity came along to join the WISH Medical team, she jumped at the chance. What she likes most about working here is the combination of advocacy and medical care, and that there is always time to connect with patients. “We meet people where they are, and hope to help them move forward in a positive way.”
LeAnn and her husband Dan have four children and four young grandchildren. They serve in a variety of areas in their church, and they all enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, and family trips.
