Sheila Zia, FNP, Brookings’ newest family nurse practitioner, is a native Oregonian. She grew up in Ashland, graduated from Ashland High School in 1981, and earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology at Southern Oregon University (SOU) in 1989.

She moved on to Oregon Health Science University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2004, a master’s degree and FNP certification in 2008, and worked in labor and delivery.

Zia currently is commuting from Ashland, working four days on and three days off, until her husband, Phil Lanni, who works for the Bureau of Land Management, retires and they can make a permanent move to Brookings. She explained that when she is assigned on-call weekend duty she will stay in town.

Her three children are all in their 20s and out of the nest. Her son Jared is at Dartmouth College, daughter Kaitlin is at SOU, and daughter Alexa is in Eugene.

Zia, who is enthusiastic about her new assignment at the Brookings Harbor Medical Center, said, “I love the patients here. They’re all ages, including kids, young adults, and lots of variety, and I like the small town atmosphere.”

She noted that she especially enjoys working with the children because of her experience in pediatrics. “I always wanted to be a nurse, and serving as an FNP fulfills my dream,” she said.

For the present, she is happy to be serving patients in Brookings and is looking forward to moving permanently to the area.

Zia also indicated that it’s nice to be near her brother and sister-in-law, John and Linda Zia, who are well known in the community.

She is on duty at the Brookings Harbor Medical Center, 446 Oak St., 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.  The center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The telephone number is 541-469-7401.

  • Factory activity in Europe, Asia cools; demand lull a concern
    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • Investors look past Ukraine, focus on ECB
    World markets advanced on Monday despite the conflict in Ukraine, focusing on whether the European Central Bank will announce plans for economic stimulus when it meets this week. Ukraine reported its forces were under fire from Russian tanks again on Monday, as new signs emerged that the turmoil was damaging the European economy. Latin American stocks mostly rose, with Brazil's benchmark Bovespa index (.BVSP) leading gains after an opinion poll showed declining re-election chances for President Dilma Rousseff, accused by investors of being excessively interventionist in the economy. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Monday of "direct and undisguised aggression", after warning over the weekend of a possible "full-scale war."
  • China's Li Ning stumbles from gold medal position to no man's land
    In 2010, former Chinese gymnast Li Ning led a surging $4 billion sportswear business, a gold-medal pinnacle echoing his victories at the 1984 Olympic Games. Now, the Li Ning (2331.HK) business is more reminiscent of the ex-sportsman's exit from the 1988 Olympics without a podium finish. As customers have turned to aspirational global brands like Nike Inc (NKE.N) or cheaper local firms, Li Ning has racked up heavy losses, losing four-fifths of its market value.
