Nurse Practitioner located in Anthem, AZ & Scottsdale, AZ

About Dr. Osgood

Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, I moved to Arizona in 1990 with my family. While living in Tucson, I worked as a paramedic and a firefighter for six years. I enjoyed all the outdoor sports Tucson has to offer; camping, rock climbing, and mountain biking. After the birth of my son, I moved to Prescott where I continued to work as a field paramedic and flight paramedic for another 6 years. After realizing I was tired of getting up at all hours of the night running calls, I decided to go back to school for nursing. In 2005, I graduated from Yavapai College with dual Associates Degrees in Nursing and Emergency Medical Technology-Paramedic. 

My first nursing job was as an emergency department nurse at a Level-One trauma center here in Phoenix. While working in the trauma center, I took care of a diverse patient population in a busy metropolitan area. We handled the most critically ill and injured patients, down to the everyday cough and cold. While working full-time and taking care of my two kids, I went back to school and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.

After ten years on ER nursing, I again realized I needed a change. So, I went back to school again, obtaining a Master’s Degree in Nursing- Family Nurse Practitioner from Grand Canyon University.

Having worked for several months in the Urgent Care Setting, the desperate need for alternatives to treating pain without medications became clear to me. After many years of working in emergency medicine, I saw a lot of patients who struggled with chronic pain; dependent on pain medications, and never seem to obtain true relief. It was frustrating for both the patients and providers. I decided there had to be a better way and came to work at Arizona Pain Relief.

At APR, our patients want to get better naturally and are committed to doing what it takes to reach that goal. This is both personally and professionally rewarding for me to see and I feel fortunate to be a part of my patients’ journey.

Fun fact: I have a second-degree Black-Belt in Tae Kwon Do and am now starting over as a white belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
