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.

Wall Street's record high on Thursday lifted Asian stocks on Friday, a day that will be packed with key European and U.S. economic data as well as speeches from Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen and European Central Bank president Mario Draghi. European shares struggled to match that, but the leading index of European shares was still poised for its biggest gain in six weeks and Germany's DAX its best week since January.
