Erin Picolet, DNP, Nursing Midwifery
Erin Picolet grew up on a cattle ranch in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Strong ties to family, community service, and love of the great outdoors were steeples of her upbringing and continue play significant roles in her life and visions for global equality. Erin first started to dream of international service and being immersed in global communities when she attended Heifer Project International Camp in middle school. Her life was forever impacted by simply standing on a map of the world that was divided according to distribution of wealth. From that moment on, Erin has pursued educational, personal development, and volunteer opportunities that foster ending poverty and the plights associated with it. Erin currently works as a Registered Nurse at the Family Maternity Center at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. International service experiences, natural/ low intervention birth practices, and Women’s Health issues led her to the UW Doctor of Nursing Program: Nurse Midwifery Track. To date, Erin is still forming her vision of the future practice setting that allows her to merge her passions, interests, and life purpose. In her free time, Erin loves to be outdoors, take photographs, spend time with family, and travel at any opportunity.
