Anette McGowan says...

I love being a Nurse Practitioner and the combination of health promotion, education, prevention and medical treatment that involves. I was born in Sweden but I have lived in the Coachella Valley since 1991 and love the Desert lifestyle, traveling, skiing, hiking and biking. I love family time with my husband and 2 teen daughters. I am a Eucharistic minister on Sundays and enjoy cooking and entertaining. I am a member of Desert Valley Independent Physicians, California Association of Nurse Practitioners, Desert Viking VASA chapter, Sigma Theta Tau, and I am passionate about GoRed for women (to treat and prevent heart disease, the #1 killer of women).
