Tricia Staatz, FNPBC, was raised in Iowa and moved to Colorado to attend Colorado State University, always with the goal of helping people. After graduating from CSU with a degree in Occupational Therapy, she went on to get a degree in nursing from the University of Northern Colorado. Tricia worked for 15 years as a labor and delivery nurse at Poudre Valley Hospital in Ft. Collins. She loved helping mothers, newborns, and their families as they welcomed new life into the world. While she found this work rewarding, the goal to help people of all ages and in all states of health convinced her to return to UNC to pursue a degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Tricia loves developing long-term partnerships with her patients, watching them grow, regain and maintain their health. Her goal in providing health care is to take a preventative approach rather than reactive. Tricia brings practicality, calm, empathy, and a smile to all of her patient encounters, helping put her patients at ease.
Tricia lives in Johnstown with her husband, Gerald, and two children, Logan and Avery. They are involved in different sporting and scouting activities, which keeps everyone busy. When they have time, they enjoy camping, hiking, traveling, going to the drive-in, and visiting family.
