Zia opens practice at Brookings office

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.

  • Why Nasdaq 5000 will keep climbing: Najarian
    Although the composite still has a few points to go before reaching its previous record of 5,048 the foundation is in place for more upward momentum, says longtime trader Jon Najarian.
  • What would the Dow look like if it included Apple?
    It may be by far the most valuable American company but Apple Inc still can’t get into at least one exclusive club – the 30-member Dow Jones Industrial Average. It is, though, hurting those who tie their investments to the performance of the venerable Dow, which was first calculated in 1896 and is still probably the best-known stock index in the world. Since Apple split its shares seven-for-one last June 6, it’s delivered investors a gain of more than 43 percent including dividend payments, and that has contributed almost one third of the Nasdaq 100’s return of 18.6 percent, according to ETF.com. Had Apple been substituted for 29 of the 30 Dow components last June, the index would have been higher.
  • Juncker says no talks in the euro zone for a third Greek bailout
    There are no talks about a third bailout for Greece, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told Reuters in Berlin on Monday after Spain's economy minister said euro zone nations are discussing a third bailout worth 30 to 50 billion euros. "There are no talks about that," Juncker said when asked on the sidelines of a conference in Berlin about reports of a third bailout. Speaking at an event earlier on Monday in Pamplona, in northern Spain, Economy Minister Luis de Guindos had said the new rescue plan would set more flexible conditions for Greece, which had no alternative other than European support. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras used a televised address on Friday to deny his country would need another international programme.
