"Hi, I’m Skyler: Family Nurse Practitioner and the founder of Frontier Mobile Clinic. I was born and raised in Salem/Keizer and graduated from McNary High School determined to never step foot in a school again. (In reality, I ended up spending another 12 years of college for medical training, but moving on!) I ventured into the health field out of a desire to see people be restored to optimum wellness. For me, this journey began in 2004 when I entered into a 2-year program in third-world medicine. With my training, I went down to the Amazon Basin for 5 months, providing basic medical treatment for river communities. Shortly after returning home to the United States, I decided to become a registered nurse. For the following 5 years after obtaining my RN license, I worked as a critical care nurse, with 3 years working in one of the West Coast’s busiest emergency departments. Talk about craziness. From gun shots to heart attacks to a scraped knee, and everything in-between, there was a lot to experience! My critical care involvement brought much to my attention about our fragmented health care system. For this reason, I continued my training and became a Family Nurse Practitioner, with a desire to help play a small piece in re-imagining how health care could be provided. After several years of wildly pondering and planning, Frontier Mobile Clinic was finally birthed in 2019. It is my hope that our services will bring benefit to our community as we all move forward in expecting more from health care delivery. Aside from my passion for health care, I love surfing, hunting, paintballing, traveling and taking my family on fun adventures. My wife and I have enjoyed raising our four children in the great city of Salem."
"When you need medical care, you want speed, convenience, fair and transparent pricing and a provider who takes the time to care. In reality, you often end up with long wait lines in uncomfortable waiting rooms, confusing bills which continue to arrive months after care, and a provider who was forced to give you hurried, impersonal care. We think there’s a better way to deliver care to the people in the greater Salem, Oregon area. With Direct Primary Care, members pay a low monthly membership fee for unlimited access to their primary care provider in the form of home or workplace visits, video visits, phone calls, emails, and texts. Because we don’t work for, or bill insurance, we have the time and freedom to give you the personalized care you and your family deserves."
