Iowa Cancer Specialists is proud to announce the addition of Tami Sheldon, ARNP to our staff.
Tami is an undergraduate of Illinois State University with a degree in Exercise Science and Fitness. She did undergraduate work at Chamberlain University of Cincinnati graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Tami also has a Master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Cincinnati and is a board certified nurse practitioner.
Tami always knew she wanted to be involved in medicine, but it wasn’t until after she received her degree in Exercise Science and Fitness that her interests directed toward nursing. She has expertise in labor and OB/GYN, and she served on the Open Heart Team at Trinity Medical Center. Recently, she worked in pain management intervention, but says her passion has always been for women’s health.
Being more than just another health care worker is important to Tami. She states she is excited about her new position at ICS as it will give her an opportunity to connect with patients while providing both educational and emotional support. ICS plans to primarily utilize Tami’s training in OB/GYN health with our ovarian cancer patients, and as a liaison between ICS and the University of Iowa Gyn/Onc department.
Tami was raised in the Quad City area. She enjoys watching the Chicago Cubs and the Bears with her Navy Veteran husband, Josh. She has two small children and a greater Swiss mountain dog named Gunner.
Be sure to stop in to Iowa Cancer Specialists to meet Tami. She looks forward to serving your health care needs.
