About Vanessa West
Vanessa West, FNP-C, is a board-certified family nurse practitioner currently seeing patients at North Atlanta Primary Care, Woodstock.
Vanessa grew up in Ellijay, in the Georgia Mountains. Her passion for healthcare started in high school, where she would walk to the local nursing home after school to help the residents with feeding, activities, and getting to know them. From then on, she knew she wanted to become a nurse.
Vanessa started out as an LPN in family medicine and had the ultimate goal of becoming a nurse practitioner. She went back to school at Georgia Highlands College for her RN Bachelors. At the time, she worked in a dialysis facility and loved it because she enjoyed seeing her patients multiple times a week and getting to know them and their families. She graduated from Georgia State University in 2023 while working full time as a charge nurse. Vanessa chose to start her nurse practitioner career at Southeast Medical Group due to their company culture and their mission to improve better healthcare outcomes for its communities. Vanessa is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
Vanessa loves to travel to different countries and learn about their cultures. She is fluent in Spanish and has travelled to Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and St. Lucia. She is always looking forward to adding new countries to the list.
