Since 2012, Dr. Maya Strom FNP-C, DNP has been practicing medicine as a board-certified nurse practitioner. Maya has practiced in a variety of settings; underserved community health clinics and most recently in a private women’s health clinic.
Generating from formative experiences in the Peace Corps in Vanuatu, as a birth assistant in a midwifery clinic, a labor and delivery RN and serving the underserved, Maya now provides a combination of primary care and women’s health care from a broad and holistic perspective. Her core belief is that each individual is an expert in their own body and has an innate and deep knowledge of their own health. Maya sees her role as a collaborator and co-investigator, where each patient is respected, valued, and deeply listened to.
Maya strongly believes in the power of relationships, communication, respect, transparency, patient empowerment and collaboration in medicine. Her goal is to bring all of those qualities into her interactions with patients.
In her free time, Maya enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, cooking, knitting, hiking, and playing cribbage.
