Maria Stohler, an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), grew up in Baton Rouge, LA, and at the age of 18 moved to Puyallup, WA. She was inspired by observing nurses in their field, decided this was her calling, and eventually graduated summa cum laude from Pacific Lutheran University with her Bachelor’s in Nursing. Though working as an oncology nurse at Tacoma General was fulfilling, her desire to connect with and care for patients in a meaningful way led her to join the United States Air Force which gave her career the breadth and depth she was looking for.
In 2009 she was awarded the Air Force Institute of Technology scholarship and was able to pursue her Master’s in Nursing at the University of South Alabama. She has been a family nurse practitioner for eight years and has loved every minute of it, but after 20 years in the Air Force, she decided it was time to transition back into the civilian world and move with her husband to Spokane where his family resides.
Maria’s broad experience includes patient-centered medical care in three family health clinics. Over the past eight years, her range of experience includes pediatrics, women’s health, and geriatric care. As a provider in the military, she also has experience in orthopedic injuries, population health, disease/diabetes management, and coordination of care.
Maria enjoys cooking, exercising, and outdoors – hence the move to Spokane and the Northwest. She is especially happy to be out in the country with lots of dogs, pygmy horses, and the ability to be closer to her family. Along with providing on-call coverage for Direct Primary Care, Maria is also the Medical Director.
