Shandel Reith, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC
“Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.”
Shandel graduated from South University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. While doing so, she simultaneously worked as a cardiovascular registered nurse at Yale New Haven Hospital. She also obtained her Master’s Degree from South University where she graduated with honors as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She has a diverse clinical background in family practice, internal medicine, urgent care, and assisted living facilities.
Shandel became a healthcare provider because she had one desire – to help others. Over the course of her career, she came to realize the meaningful and sometimes unfortunately overlooked role of providing holistic patient-centered care for mental health patients. She believes in a team-based model of care which aims to meet the patient and family’s needs and preferences by earnestly engaging patients as full participants in their care, while encouraging the care team to function within the full scope of their education, certification, and experience. She is committed to providing a collaborative relationship with the patient, family, and team members to achieve treatment goals.
In her free time, Shandel spends much of her time with her husband, two daughters, and family dog. She enjoys horseback riding, traveling, reading books, and going to local beaches. She finds reward in giving back to the community and has completed volunteer work as the Vice President and Funds Manager for the 52-52 Cancer Run and as a Tactical Combat Role Player for T2 Trauma Training. She has also volunteered for the American Heart Association and Oasis Facility Soup Kitchen.< Back
