About Burgess

Robin is a family nurse practitioner who is passionate about providing the best care possible to each individual patient; understanding that what works best for one patient may not be the best option for another. She enjoys taking the time to get to know each patient individually and work in conjunction with them and their beliefs to formulate a plan to achieve the desired outcome, often combining both western and eastern practices.

Robin spent time her adolescence volunteering in nursing homes and hospice, eventually going on to become a hospice nurse. She decided to continue her education, earning her Master’s from Jacksonville University in 2017 and her Family Nurse Practitioner degree from West Virginia University in May of 2019. Thanks to her high grades she was able to become a member of Sigma Theta Tau, a nonprofit nursing organization. She is eager to make a difference in her field while she continues to pursue her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP), which she is set to complete in June 2021.

In her free time, Robin enjoys cultivating her daily meditation practice which she began two years ago, and attending continuing education seminars focusing on whole body wellness. She is particularly interested in the human microbiome and how much our seemingly small daily choices can impact our entire well-being.
