Family nurse practitioner Rachel Salloway, APRN, is now seeing patients in Gifford’s Randolph Primary Care clinic. Salloway moved to Vermont from Boston, where she most recently worked at Hale House Assisted Living and Spaulding Hospital.
While she grew up in a small community near Providence, RI, Salloway has always felt connected to Vermont. She spent seven summers attending and working at Camp Killooleet in Hancock, Vt., and in 2011 she hiked the entire length of Vermont on the Long Trail. This was an especially meaningful trip for her because Hurricane Irene hit as she camped at Taft Lodge on the top of Mount Mansfield.
“I’ve always known that I wanted to work in healthcare in Vermont, but was particularly impressed with the closely knit nature of the area when I saw so many neighbors come together to combat the devastation of Irene,” she said.
After receiving a BS in Political Science from Bates College, Salloway trained for a BS and Master of Science in Nursing from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions in Boston. She has studied public health in Uganda, nursing in India, and has worked with diverse patient populations including incarcerated women, refugees, and immigrants. She strongly believes in making quality healthcare accessible for all members of the community.
As a provider she most enjoys learning about patients, and helping them to feel comfortable working with her to meet their health goals. Her clinical interests include women’s health, community and rural health, preventative health, and family care for all ages.
A hiker and gardener, Salloway lives with her partner, Bo, in Middlesex, Vt. She joins family primary care providers Christina Harlow, DNP, APRN; Kenneth Borie, DO; and Marcus Coxon, MD in the Randolph clinic. For more information visit www.giffordhealthcare.org or call 802-728-2445.
