“My visit to the ER was great. The doctor was awesome. He took the time to figure out what was causing my allergic reaction and made sure I was comfortable.”
Joann Bourlier-Childress, PA-C
& Director Business Development
Joann has more than 20 years of experience practicing as an PA. She is originally from Western Nebraska and became interested in medicine after serving as an EMT in Kimball, Nebraska. She attended PA school at UNMC in Omaha, Nebraska because she was interested in following a patient’s care from the beginning to discharge rather than leaving the patient in the ED. Joann enjoys being part of Aligned Providers Wyoming, which has helped her learn to serve others with more compassion and introduced her to a new calling: serving third world communities through mission work. Her true loves continue to be her two amazing children, Kelvin and Lexi. Kelvin has two daughters, Noa and Andi. They live in Beijing, China and have taught her the blessing of Skype.
