Jonathon grew up in Pasco, WA and has been part of the Columbia Basin community
for the majority of his life.
He received his nursing degree from Washington State University and was
a Registered Nurse for 13 years. Then he completed his Masters from Maryville
University to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.
For several years he was a manager at the Fresenius Kidney Care Leah Layne
Dialysis Clinic in Othello. “While I lived here I learned that everyone
knows everyone, and I believe it makes the community closer.” Jonathon
enjoys the way members of the Othello look out for each other, and he
is excited to be serving them again.
Jonathon has always wanted to be part of the medical field growing up.
“I really liked the sports medicine program in school, but nursing
felt like the right step for me. I enjoy taking care of patients and educating
them on their health, it’s very important work to me.”
He decided to come to CBHA because he appreciated how loyal staff was to
the organization. Jonathon also likes how involved we are in the community.
“You can tell that CBHA cares for their communities. They’re
always looking for ways to be more involved, give back and show support
in any way they can.”
In his free time, Jonathon enjoys spending time with his family. “I
have 5 boys. And we do everything that involves being outdoors, biking,
hiking and camping,” says Jonathon. He also enjoys woodworking,
building things for his wife and staying busy.
