When asked about why she’s so passionate about her work, she shared, “My job and career have given me the opportunity to help women from all walks of life. I have always had a passion for medicine and by nature I am a nurturer. Working as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner gives me the opportunity to take care of the patient as a whole. Developing relationships that allow me to help take care of them physically, emotionally and spiritually. Knowing that I have helped someone in any of these ways, reminds me every day why I chose this career path.”
Yara supports her patients, and encourages them to be an advocate in their own healthcare, putting an emphasis on wellness and illness prevention. She is inspired by people who truly care for the wellbeing of others and live their lives by the Golden Rule, to “treat others as you would like to be treated.” In her free time, Yara spends her time with family and friends, and enjoys fitness, traveling, and a good day of relaxation. Besides English, Yara Hatem also speaks Spanish and Arabic.
