Ms. Froning earned her MSN from the University of Arizona and also completed clinical coursework leading to certification as both an Adult and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. She is nationally Board Certified in Adult care and has her specialty in Cardiology.

Professionally, Ms. Froning is interested in chronic heart failure, lipid disorders, and women’s cardiovascular health. She is very supportive of the Clinical Research Department, knowing that it puts the practice on the forefront of progress for development of improved cardiovascular care. She states that “helping the patients and their families understand the disease process and the medications is a huge part of my job. It is very rewarding for me to help people realize what is happening to them, why it is happening, and what WE as a team, can do about it. Once a person understands the diagnoses and the treatment, much of their fear can be alleviated.” When not on the job, Ms. Froning enjoys hiking, camping, reading and cooking. Time with family is precious, especially when traveling to see her son and daughter.
