Patient-centered care is all about listening to each patients’ goals including their family dynamics.

Though Nichole has experience with intensive care and even cardiology, she came back to practice primary care in our small community to prevent acute illnesses and help manage chronic diseases. It’s her goal to help educate patients to improve their quality of life.

Nichole chose a rural community because she grew up in one near the Allegheny National Forest. She enjoys smaller communities because she gets to know the patients and their families while learning about the area she lives in.

She chose Tri-County Family Medicine (TCFM) after completing a Rural Post Graduate Nurse Practitioner Residency with TCFM and appreciated the support and culture here.

Nichole has a Master of Science in Nursing and is certified as an Adult Geriatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner.

In her free time, she likes to hike with her mini-Aussie, go on adventures with her niece, travel, and spend time with her husband at her camp in Pennsylvania.

When your career chooses you.

Melinda Tellier, FNP-C, says that she didn’t choose family practice, it chose her. Her mother was a Physician Assistant at Tri-County Family Medicine for several years. Growing up, Melinda saw how much her mother loved her job and how her patients loved her. Practicing medicine was engrained in her life and was always her career goal.

Melinda joined Tri-County after working as a Nurse Practitioner for three years. She also worked as a Registered Nurse prior to getting her Master’s Degree at the University of Rochester.

Melinda has a holistic approach to patient care. Thinking about every aspect of her patient’s life, not just their health. “I try to think about what other barriers they may be facing and how I can help.”

And helping her patients overcome health and life barriers is what motivates Melinda every day. “I genuinely enjoy when I see someone succeed in their health and life. I have the privilege to be a part of that.”

Melinda is married with three children and in her spare time, enjoys spending time with her family.
