Wendy Rivera, DNP, AGAC NP- BC, Midi Clinician

Wendy has worked in healthcare for more than two decades, starting in the Intensive Care Unit at a Level One trauma facility. “I learn the most when I’m challenged,” she says, “so I wanted to make sure I got comfortable taking care of the sickest of the sick.”

Since then she’s gained experiences in a wide variety of healthcare settings, including orthopedics, cardiology, oncology, and endocrinology. “I made sure to reach the capstone of my education in nursing by obtaining a Doctorate degree in Nursing Practice, so I could understand how to decipher research credibly. Not all research is created equal, and abstracts can be misleading. I learned to read studies in a detailed way that shows their validity and applicability in evidenced-based medicine.  This lets me serve patients by understanding and explaining all the latest and safest options. At Midi, I apply my diverse experience and education as someone tells me about their symptoms to their care plan. I’m connecting the dots as I form a diagnosis.”

Her concern about the midlife care most women receive? “There’s often not enough time. You simply can’t appreciate a woman’s menopause experience in brief visit. And many clinicians don’t have an open mind or an up to date understanding of hormone therapy,” Wendy says. “I was looking for a way to do it better. Midi opened that door.”
