Michelle Sparling, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC

Michelle Sparling moved to Reno in 1997 from Lapeer, Michigan. She went to Michelle Sparling FNP photoWestern Nevada College in Carson City and completed her Associate of Science Degree in Nursing. Upon graduation, Michelle began working at Renown Regional Medical Center on the Orthopedics Medical-Surgical floor while completing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Nevada, Reno. While finishing school and working at Renown, Michelle acknowledged her desire to expand her knowledge and dig deeper into medicine, and upon graduation from UNR began attending Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY, to complete her Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, degree. During her Master’s, she had the opportunity to work in a GI specialty practice and found her passion in managing the full spectrum of GI medicine.

A key message that Michelle was taught in school and values as a provider is embracing empathy as an intervention with all of her patients, their family members and their friends. Her goal is to apply her knowledge as well as her interpersonal, active listening skills when caring for and working alongside patients and family members. Michelle has a passion for maintaining healthy eating habits as so much of an individual’s health is determined by his or her diet. Michelle is affiliated with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Michelle loves spending time with her 5-year-old daughter, Emma, and their labradoodle, Josie T-Rex Velociraptor Quincey (Josie for short). They enjoy staying active through hiking, camping, traveling and spontaneously going on random adventures. They recently began ski lessons at Sky Tavern and have really enjoyed learning and doing lots of sledding and snowman building. Michelle loves attending concerts and hopes to do her first full marathon this spring.
