Beth Holderby, APRN-CNP, is putting new roots down at Mercy Clinic Primary Care Guthrie Division. She joins providers Casey Peters, MD, Jignesh Veragiwala, MD, and Lauren Schwarz, PA, in practice.
Holderby is a family nurse practitioner who will care for patients of all ages. She graduated from The University of Alabama with a Master’s of Science in Nursing and has worked as a critical care nurse in intensive care.
“That experience taught me how to stay cool, calm and collected,” said Holderby. “I gained a lot of confidence there that I know will be beneficial to my patients.”
Growing up in rural Alfalfa County, Okla., Holderby is excited to make her home in Guthrie which she considers a small town with a big city feel. “I’m a farm girl at heart,” said Holderby. “I’ve heard such wonderful things about the town of Guthrie, and I can’t wait to start my practice and get to know the people here.”
Holderby also values a close patient/provider relationship.
“I want to have a partnership with my patients,” she said. “It’s not about me telling them do something; it’s about us working together to achieve their health care goals. Helping people improve or even maintain good health is very rewarding.”
Having a niece with Type 1 Diabetes gives Holderby a special heart for diabetes care and education.
“I feel this driving passion to help people; I always have,” said Holderby. “God has given me the gift of compassion, and I hope to share that with my patients.”
Outside of work, Holderby loves to travel. She’s also an avid reader and enjoys watching movies.
