Biography & Education

Patti Spooner joined Providence Maternal Care Clinic in 2003, bringing experience as both a labor and delivery nurse and a family nurse practitioner.

After studies in Colorado and at Portland State University, Patti earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing at Oregon Health & Science University. She worked in labor and delivery at OHSU before becoming a family nurse practitioner. 

Patti worked as a family nurse practitioner for eight years but missed working with pregnant women, so she returned to OHSU to complete a master’s degree in nursing/midwifery.

Patti grew up in the Portland area, one of 11 children. She enjoys being outdoors, running, bicycling, and spending time with her family.
