About Stolworthy

I have always been a nurse. I have never thought of having any other career. Some of my earliest memories are of bandaging up my dad! I loved working in the hospital setting but when I started to spend more time doing paperwork than I did with my patients, I knew it was time to make a change in my career.

I attended a rural high school in Northern Idaho in a graduating class of 26 students!  I went straight to college after graduation. I applied to nursing school in my sophomore year. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1994 from Idaho State University in Pocatello, ID. I found that I really love teaching my patients, so I later returned to ISU to obtain my Master's in Public Health Degree which focused primarily on patient education and concurrently studied for my Master's Degree in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner.  I graduated with honors in 2003 and 2004 respectively. I will be starting my doctorate degree in August, 2019.


I have experience in Cardiology, Urgent Care, Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Family Medicine, and Hormone Replacement Therapy.  I offer comprehensive adult primary care, sexual health medicine, and hormone replacement therapy, as well as regenerative medicine.

Continuous education is imperative in order for me to provide the most up to date information and treatment options for my patients. I am currently preparing for certification as a menopause practitioner through The North American Menopause Society and in women's sexual health through ISSWSH.  I am interested in alternative and natural medicine and I continue to study both of these genres as well as anti-aging medicine through A4M (I'm not currently a member).


I have always practiced Functional Medicine. I believe very strongly in health promotion and disease prevention. I find teaching very satisfying and I really enjoy involving my patients in their own care. Healthcare is not just Western Medicine. Holistic health and wellness is composed of other modalities including chiropractic, naturopathic, dietetic and psychiatric among others. I am blessed to collaborate with exceptional professionals in these areas.


I am the extremely proud mother of two truly kind, thoughtful and successful (not to mention handsome) young men.  I am also fortunate to have 3 additional young adults and their spouses in my life, through my significant other, Darrin.  I am yet to be a grandma, something I absolutely CANNOT WAIT to become!
