Gabriele Ford, MSN, FNP-C, AGACNP-BC, is a nurse practitioner who has spent her entire career at UVA. She sees hospitalized patients and outpatients at our Surgical Care Clinic. Previously, she was a critical care nurse in UVA's Nerancy Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit.
"I always was interested in science and medicine, so it was natural for me to become a nurse and later on a nurse practitioner," says Gabriele, a native of Germany. "I've always cared about people, and I love to help. I'm very passionate about my job and my patients."
Gabriele is equally passionate about animals, especially dogs. "When I'm not in the hospital taking care of patients, I'm often out helping dog rescue organizations," she says.
