Andria Steinkamp, FNP
Family Nurse Practitioner
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Andria cannot imagine living anywhere else. Her only tenure living out of county was while attaining her undergraduate degree in Psychology at UC Davis. It was there that she accompanied a friend to a presentation on nursing, and realized what it was she was meant to do. At the time UCD did not offer a Nursing degree, so she finished her Bachelor’s and returned home to earn her Associate Degree in Nursing from Santa Rosa Junior College. While attending nursing school she worked at a local retinal specialist clinic.
Upon earning her RN license, Andria went to work at Kaiser Medical Center in San Rafael, working mostly with post-surgical and pediatric patients. She served on the Safety and Education Committees and facilitated the introduction of Electronic Medical Records into the hospital.
Andria obtained her Master’s Degree and Family Nurse Practitioner designation from Frontier Nursing University. She began working at the Institute for Health Management, as well as for Sonoma County on the Sexual Assault Response Team, where she performed forensic medical exams for victims of sexual assault. About this time, Andria began working with her retriever mix Samson in his training and certification as a Therapy Dog with Paws for Healing, and then began volunteering in skilled nursing facilities, allowing residents time to enjoy a friendly furry face.
Most recently, Andria has expanded her county duties by taking intermittent shifts working with the child and adolescent residents of Juvenile Hall and the Valley of the Moon Children’s Home.
In her free time Andria enjoys being with her two young children, husband, cat, and dog. They enjoy an outdoor lifestyle as much as possible, hiking, biking and camping, exploring all Sonoma County has to offer. She also enjoys reading and baking.
