Becky Compton, MSN, FNP-C
Associate Medical Director of Primary Care Center Clinic
Ever since I was in 6th grade, I knew I wanted to do something in the medical field. I was the oldest of 7 children, so caring for others came with the territory.
I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a large portion of my childhood in Germany. Living abroad allowed me to become culturally sensitive and interested in learning more about various cultures.
After completing nursing school, I began working as a Medical-Surgical nurse and then worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse. I obtained my MSN degree at the UVA School of Nursing and became a Family Nurse Practitioner. I worked for a little over a year in Cardiology, then joined the Family Medicine Clinic team.
One of the reasons I chose Family Medicine as my specialty, is because of the broad scope in which we can help people. I love to be able to connect with my patients, follow them throughout their life, and be here to help them when they need the help. Each patient brings a new story and I look forward to discovering what that story will be.
In addition to my work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dave and our sons Gabriel and Jaden.
