Devon Schneider brings her passion for health and her compassion for care to her role as a family nurse practitioner (FNP). The appreciation of her patients and seeing them benefit from her care is what she loves most about her job in healthcare. Having worked in a variety of settings and provided a full breadth of patient care needs, she is uniquely positioned for family practice. Qualified and skilled to treat chronic and complex conditions, execute wellness screenings, and address mild illnesses and injuries, Devon offers her patients the ability to manage the entire care continuum.“The care I witnessed others receive as a child inspired me to become a healthcare professional and provide similar care to others.” Devon earned her nursing degree at Rush University College of Nursing in Chicago, Illinois. She then went on to work a combined eight years as an operating room nurse and surgical intensive care unit nurse at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL, before turning her focus to family medicine.
“I moved from Chicago, Illinois, to Roseburg, Oregon, when I received my master’s degree.” Devon worked for four years as a family nurse practitioner at DCIPA private practice in Roseburg. For over four years before joining BestMed, she worked at Healing Spirit Integrative Health Center in Eugene, and at Planned Parenthood, where she provided women’s preventive care treatment. “I have been trained to do intrauterine contraception and arm implants for contraception.”
Devon’s advice to her patients is one of straightforward, healthy decision-making. “The advice I’d like to give to my patients is to incorporate a healthy, less stressful lifestyle in whatever ways possible such as increasing exercise, eating well, and finding time for enjoyable hobbies while improving their health.”
“In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my children, hiking, snow skiing, gardening, and swimming. I walk my dog and take the kids to the park.” Devon lives in Eugene with her spouse, two sons, and German Shepherd.
