“My business name is a metaphor. I am anchoring myself to a healthcare model that I believe in which is woman-centered care. This means my patients are at the heart of everything that I do.” She offers reproductive and preventive health care to teenagers and women of all ages. This includes visits such as family planning, annual exams, and breastfeeding support. The care she provides is based on a foundation of compassion, respect, and trust.
Anchored Women’s Health offers online appointment booking, ample time during appointments, and flexible hours. Kristen encourages women to contact her directly either by phone, email, or through her website if an early morning or even weekend appointment is desired. Kristen is passionate about evidence-based care, access to care, and shared decision making.
Kristen is a licensed, independent health care provider with prescriptive authority. Her practice is unique in that she has no employees. “I do everything from checking patients in, to checking patients out, and everything in between.” She has found this allows for more privacy, efficiency, and time during appointments.
Kristen has been board certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board since 2016, and is excited to grow her practice. She was born and raised in DownEast, Maine and is happy to be serving women in this area. “I feel I connect so well with women in this area because I grew up here. The women are hard working, down to earth, and inspire me everyday.” Anchored Women’s Health is in-network with most major health insurance companies.
