About:

Working as a nurse for the past 13 years, Debra Painter, NP-C, has always enjoyed taking care of people. She decided she wanted to become a nurse practitioner so she could help patients with the prevention and education of acute and chronic diseases. “Education is a key part of prevention and I want to help educate, not just treat patients,” said Debra. “I chose family health because I wanted to take care of patients at all ages. I feel at home here at Good Samaritan and cannot see myself practicing anywhere else.” Debra and her husband, Jim, have been married for 24 years and reside in Claremont, Illinois. Together with their two sons, Marcus and Owen, they enjoy spending time outdoors, especially during the warm seasons. Debra also likes to landscape, garden, complete home improvement projects, camp, fish, ride motorcycles and trail ride on ATV’s.
