Michele Pierce, FNP-BC

Specialist in Family Medicine

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Michele Pierce, FNP-BC is a family nurse practitioner at Galen, and a Chattanooga native. She went to school at GPS, and continued her education at the University of Tennessee Knoxville where she pursued a B.S. in Exercise Science. After school, she returned home to Chattanooga and worked as an administrative assistant at an investment advisory firm, and as a rowing coach at her alma mater, GPS.

Though she found great joy in coaching the rowing team, Michele eventually decided to return to school, this go-round staying in town and attending UTC where she went for another bachelor’s degree in Nursing. After that, she decided to continue studying in the Family Nurse Practitioner program at UTC. She worked in the SICU at Memorial Hospital while working her way through the FNP program. 

Though she initially intended to pursue a career in physical therapy, a few life experiences culminated in ushering her in the direction of nursing. “It was a great way to combine the physical, hands-on aspect of patient care with developing connections with patients and providing emotional support,” she said.

Michele is married with two daughters, and enjoys working out as often as time permits. She loves yoga, mountain biking, and all things outdoors.
