About Kenisha Starks
Kenisha earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She then went on to obtain her Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialty Track in Family Nurse Practitioner from Chamberlain University in Chicago, Illinois.
She treats each patient as though they were a member of her own family or close friend, and she is dedicated to upholding the following five principles: communication, privacy, independence, safety, and dignity. She also believes that each patient deserves the same amount of time, attention, and commitment, and that she should never forget that a patient is a person first and foremost.
She is in favor of using a holistic approach when practicing conventional medicine. She is aware that there are several aspects of a patient’s life outside medicine that affect their well-being, including social, cultural, psychological, ethical, and spiritual aspects.
Her inspiration to work in the medical field comes from the want to help others. She chose internal medicine because it allows her to care for patients outside of the hospital setting while, simultaneously, aiding in the prevention of hospitalization. She enjoys the continuity of care and developing long-term relationships with patients and their families.
Kenisha’s Passion Project came about by the establishing of a care team to volunteer in Jamaica for one week each year. Volunteers care for natives providing them with BP clinics, DM checks, women’s health visits, and wellness and sick visits.
When not at work, Kenisha enjoys traveling and spending time decorating her home.
