Ann Lovegren is a Family Nurse Practitioner at University Health and Counseling Services. For her, working at USM, and with USM students, is particularly special: Ann earned a Bachelors degree in French from USM in 1991, then returned in 1994 to pursue a Masters degree in Nursing.
Upon graduation in 1997, Ann spent six years working with underserved populations. She worked at a rural health center in Down East Maine as part of the National Health Service Corps, and later in the Bangor area. Ann loves being a nurse practitioner because she can take the time to really get to know her patients and work with them on their personal goals toward wellness.
Ann has been with University Health and Counseling since 2003. She has developed a special interest in working with students with eating disorders and is also interested in the prevention of chronic illness such as hypertension and diabetes. When not at work, Ann is busy planning, working in, or harvesting from her garden at home. She is married and also shares her home with two black cats and a larger-than-most Siberian husky.
