Welcome Nicole Serrano & Emily Williams
Nicole Serrano, Nurse Practitioner
Please help us welcome Nicole Serrano, Family Nurse Practitioner, to Family Medicine Associates. Nicole was asked to join the practice after demonstrating a particularly high level of skill during her internship here. Nicole grew up in Hamilton, New York and says she fell in love with Ithaca when she would vacation here with her family. Very much an academic, after she graduated high school, she took time off to live and study in Brazil before college. She obtained her Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and then decided to stay in the area when she started working at Cayuga Medical Center. While continuing at CMC Critical Care, she obtained her BSN from Utica College which was followed by her MSN as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Frontier Nursing University. Nicole spent much time here at Family Medicine Associates as a Nurse Practitioner intern. She continues to work toward her doctoral degree at Frontier. Nicole says she is thankful to Ithaca for guiding her, and helping her to grow into the professional she has become. She is excited at the prospect of giving back, and looks forward to being your partner on your healthcare journey.
