Anna Michele is an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner board certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. She has 15 years of nursing experience.
Anna Michele was born and raised in Austin, Texas. After living in California while her husband attended UC Berkeley, she returned to Austin to raise her two daughters as her husband began his career as a teacher. She entered nursing school when her youngest daughter started kindergarten. She completed her ADN at Austin Community College in 2005 and went on to earn her BSN at UT Arlington shortly after while working as an intensive care nurse. She worked as a Palliative Care nurse for a year after developing the program for the ICU. Her experience in that field taught her that feeling well is just as important as being well. In 2017, she went back to school to become a NP and earned her MSN in 2019 with specialty in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.
Her goal is to work with her patients to develop a plan of care that will help them achieve their goals and receive the highest quality care. She maintains a commitment to excellence, compassion and respect while caring for her patients. When not at work she enjoys hiking, traveling, camping and reading. She also has a great love for film and live music. And, of course, she spends as much time as she can with her family, friends and her dog Jake.
