"I grew up as the only child of Ruth and Edwin Bunting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My nursing education was at the Einstein Medical Center of Philadelphia. I also attended Penn State University. I worked in intensive care nursing in the city and various hospital specialties, as well as years of experience in a small rural hospital in Bridgton, Maine. Rural practice is where one learns to be good at a lot of things with limited resources and very little specialty help. Many years of working in physician office have also broadened my experience. In the 1980’s, I expanded my training at the University of Maine Nurse Practitioner program. Throughout my career, and as a certified Family Nurse Practitioner, I have enjoyed, and been most satisfied, with one-on-one patients contact. I’ll leave administrative nursing to someone else. Beyond any other accomplishments, being a mother of 6, a wife, a grandmother of 17, and now a great-grandmother of 3, and friend to the family and this community of the Kennebunks, had given me purpose and rewarding direction. I am blessed and most grateful. I feel privileged to be working with my husband, Dr. Freeman here in the Lower Village. We share a common purpose of providing compassionate, personal, up-to-date care. We strive to practice both the art and the science of our professions. We appreciate your trust in us."
