About Me

I believe one of my most important roles for my patients is to provide education that will enable them to be active participants in their health care. I strive to collaborate with my patients to develop strategies that not only meet our treatment goals but also take into consideration their unique life situations and perspectives on health.

- Carly Griffin, FNP

Carly began her career as a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Linfield College with the intent to return to school to become a nurse practitioner. As an RN, she worked in inpatient medicine in intermediate care, telemetry, and respiratory care units. Her experience as an acute care RN solidified her goal to become a nurse practitioner, and she obtained her doctorate degree from University of Portland’s Family Nurse Practitioner program. As a nurse practitioner, Carly strives to provide holistic care for her patients and their families. She believes that education and a strong patient-provider relationship is crucial to providing high-quality care and ensuring that patients are best equipped to reach their health and life goals. She speaks Spanish.
