Kristen Foskett is a Family Nurse Practitioner and Doctoral student at OHSU. Her passion stems from years of work as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner and Primary Care Nurse.  She found her nursing career after working in the field of the arts directing and painting murals in the Bay Area. She has worked as a doula for homeless women in San Francisco, and volunteered with the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Her love of nursing comes from her commitment to social justice issues and she always look for ways to get involved in the community.

She currently lives in NW Portland with her dog who she enjoys camping, hiking, and adventuring with. She is a novice bread baker but an expert bread consumer. She looks forward to practicing as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Central Oregon so she can regularly pop on her skis and float on the river.
