Shandy Welch, FNP

As a child, Shandy had the unique ability to see the potential in people and situations when others had given up. She has transformed medical teams, mobilized thinking and rescued more farm animals than ever planned. Over the last 19 years she worked at Providence Health Systems in an effort to create teams and deliver clinical care that far exceeds the industry norm. She pushes limits, challenges the current thinking and encourages others to reach beyond their comfort zone. Her work as a clinician, administrator and most recently a patient, has catapulted her vision and enthusiasm for helping individuals move past their fear and see how one’s perspective is closely tied to their reality.

Shandy founded Fresh Eyes consulting with the dream of creating a platform and opportunity in which both individuals and groups are inspired to recognize their strength, leverage their talents and find unexpected opportunities. Her goal is to ask the questions that allow one to shift their perspective and create a life that integrates passion with expertise. She uses her charismatic approach to ask the hard questions and requires accountability and action without the usual pain and suffering!

Shandy holds a B.A. from Lewis & Clark College in psychology, a B.S. and a Master’s in nursing/family nurse practitioner from Regis College, as well as a coaching certification. Her guiding tenant: don’t forget humanity in the midst of technology.
