Lorie Poston is dual board-certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner and an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. Lorie is originally from Pittsburgh, PA. In 2010, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. In 2014, she earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice and Family Nurse Practitioner degrees also from Robert Morris University. She studied for her graduate degrees while working full time as a neuro-intensive care nurse at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s (UPMC) flagship Presbyterian Hospital. In 2015, she obtained her post-master’s certification as an adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.
Lorie loves caring for and connecting with patients, and genuinely believes holistic wellness is the single most important factor for a good life. Given this belief, she has been driven to continually grow her knowledge base, and obtain a vast clinical skill set in both the outpatient and inpatient care settings, and telemedicine. In the last decade she has practiced primary care across the lifespan, and adult and geriatric medicine in multiple settings. These settings include skilled nursing and rehab facilities, long term acute care hospitals, and both community and academic hospitals, including practice in cardiovascular intensive care. In the last several years, she spent most of her time practicing hospitalist medicine while also serving as the chief practitioner of the Department of Medicine at Ruby Memorial Hospital, an academic center in Morgantown, WV offering tertiary and quaternary care.
In her personal time, she enjoys walks with her dog, hiking, spending time on the lake, reading and traveling. She relocated to North Carolina to enjoy the sunshine and outdoor activities the state has to offer with her family and friends.
