Cynthia Mahoney: I've been a Family Nurse Practitioner for 10 years, and a Registered Nurse for 28 years. Before becoming a RN and Family Nurse Practitioner, I received a Bachelor degree in Biblical Studies from Lutheran Bible Institute (Trinity Lutheran College) in Issaquah Washington in 1980. This is why this practice is called "Living Waters" Family Practice - because there is wholeness in belief in God. Previous to this, I attended the University of Wisconsin at River Falls as a psychology major. It was the attending of classes void of hope that led me to Trinity Lutheran College and closer to God. I received my Associate Degree in Nursing (RN) in 1984 from College of the Desert, Palm Desert California and I practiced there for 8 years between Desert Hospital in Palm Springs and Eisenhower Medical Center, Rancho Mirage. I later moved to Southern Oregon to raise my family and in 1998 received my Bachelor in Nursing, then Master in Nursing in 2002 from Oregon Health and Sciences University, while I worked with a local Internist. I provide primary medical care in the field of Internal Medicine (which translates into 'complex health care needs'), with an emphasis on nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, exercise and nutrition management, weight management and urgent care needs. I am a current member of the ANCC, the AANP, the Society of Hospital Medicine, and have presided over the Nurse Practitioner Roundtable of Grants Pass, an organization to promote the pursuit of excellence in evidence based medicine and rural health care outreach. "Fabulous Foods!" for publication is done!. I live in Southern Oregon with my husband Pat, and have three children and four grandchildren. We have four grandkids, two from our oldest son Dave and daughter-in-law Steph: Ethan and Caleb. We waved our hankies as Dave completed in the top of his class for Army Combat Medic, and the family moved to Kentucky. We celebrated the arrival of Trisha and Travis'' first boy, Sage, and our first granddaughter, Ruby. Now it's Matt's turn to get serious... Coming to Oregon was really coming home to my ancestral roots, part of the Oregon Trail - Samual K. Barlow of the Barlow Trail was my g-g-g-g grandfather and while I grew up in the midwest, I always longed for "home," where I met my husband, Pat who first lived in Gresham, then in Central Point. City boy.
