Our Staff
LaWanda Mann, FNP-C
An Arizona native, I grew up watching my mom help patients, neighbors and the community. I understood at an early age that we are our brother’s keeper. I have answered that calling. I have been a Registered Nurse for well over a decade with experience in inpatient care, E.R., hospice and case management. Realizing I could do more, I earned my Advanced Practice Nursing degree from the University of Phoenix in 2015, and currently practices as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I believe that no amount of training will prepare me to learn more about my patients than listening to them. Working together, we can create a treatment that will benefit each individual patient. I am married with two children and a boxer who thinks he is the third child. While I grew up in the desert, my favorite place to be is on a sandy beach with cool water and steel drum

Wade Jespersen, Podiatrist

 

Dr Jespersen is fluent in Spanish as a result of serving a two-year religious mission in north central Peru from ages nineteen to twenty-one. There he cultivated a great love for serving and helping others. The abundance of opportunities for compassionate service and care for others attracted him to the practice of medicine and more specifically podiatry. He earned a medical degree from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona and then completed three years of residency training in Erie, Pennsylvania. There he received comprehensive training in conservative and surgical care of foot and ankle pathology at the Millcreek Community Hospital Podiatry Residency Program. He thoroughly enjoyed the training and especially the opportunity to connect with patients and improve their quality of life. He believes strongly in treating each patient as if they were a member of his own family.

In his personal life, Dr Jespersen’s greatest joy is derived from spending time with his wife Sarah and four young children: Evie, Jonah, Bennett and Vivian. He enjoys rock climbing, snow skiing and snowboarding, hiking and canyoneering, camping, and playing guitar. He is a licensed small single engine aircraft pilot and an aviation enthusiast.
