Jamie Nieukirk, Registered Respiratory Therapist

Jamie became a respiratory therapist only because there are very few openings for professional, full-time baby cuddlers. So her caring nature is satisfied by helping her COPD patients instead. Working with her patients fulfills her need to provide specialized care that helps people feel better, and the hugs many of her patients offer her prove how much her nurturing and knowledgeable approach means to them. When Jamie isn’t helping patients breathe better, she’s running her four musical children around or possibly swimming and enjoying lake life at one of her favorite vacation spots, including Holland, Mi. and Branson, Mo. She also likes good coffee, chocolate, and cookies — this is a gal who knows how to take a breather after working hard. She might miss the years when her children were little, but now that her first has graduated from PCHS, she has a little more time for cooking, crafting, and photography.
