Ryan Willis, ARNP

I am a native Washingtonian and have lived in Whatcom County for more than a decade. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Washington and completed my Master of Science degree and family nurse practitioner training at Gonzaga University. I am board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Before joining Family Care Network, I worked as a registered nurse in Bellingham with experience in emergency and critical care.

As a provider who is passionate about preventive medicine, I practice a holistic approach to wellness, in which physical, mental, and emotional needs all play a part. I have a special interest in diabetes management and prevention, and I practice the most up-to-date, evidence-based medicine. I enjoy caring for people of all ages, including young adults and the LGBTQ+ community. I advocate for and empower my patients to make informed decisions about their diverse healthcare needs.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling the world with my partner, scuba diving, and hiking the many trails in the Pacific Northwest.
