Jeannie Umanzor received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Mount Saint Mary’s University and her Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) from Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science. She holds a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) certificate from National University.

Jeannie grew up in Arcadia, California, and did a lot of volunteering with Special Olympics and Children’s Hospital. She specifically worked with vulnerable populations, because she could see that there was a lack of empathy and support for them. They are often stigmatized, and this can lead to other unfortunate diagnoses that are often missed, such as emotional distress and depression.

Jeannie always knew she wanted to work in the medical field. After seeing how the care provided by nurses impacted the healing and recovery of a hospitalized relative, she decided to become a nurse. As an RN, she encountered many patients with mental illness who were stigmatized and treated differently due to their diagnoses. She wanted to make a change in the way society views mental illness.

Jeannie loves being able to listen to someone at their most vulnerable and help them cope through their individual situation. She wants clients to know that she is here for them and will not force any treatment plans. She is client centered and understands that each client needs an individualized treatment plan.

When she isn’t working, Jeannie enjoys being outdoors with her family. They often camp and hike.
