Elevate Health Staff
Sandra Johnson, office manager, has worked in medical clinics in a variety of administrative capacities for more than 25 years. She oversees the operations of the clinic and staff and is a skilled communication facilitator. Sandra has lived in Oregon for more than 40 years and is a passionate gardener and bike commuter.
Joeey Thom comes to Elevate Health with 16 years experience as a certified medical assistant in cardiology, family, and internal medicine clinics. Joeey thoroughly enjoys the clinical aspects of her work, such as drawing blood, administering immunizations, and providing procedural assistance. Patients find her confidence and openness comforting. (“Just ask me!” she says.) She appreciates being there for everyone, from infants to elders. She also thrives on finding organizational and administrative efficiencies to fully support the primary care providers.
Joeey, a Nevada native, has been in Oregon since 1998. As much as she enjoys her clinical work, her young son Jamison is “her everything.” They enjoy camping, park visits and movies together. She is in awe of his compassion, and his vocabulary.
Even independent of her son, she is a self-avowed fan of anything Minion, having an “embarrassingly large collection of Minion stuff.” And if you don’t know about the Minions, just ask her.
Tiffanie Wickwire, medical assistant, draws on previous pediatric and pain management clinic experience, as well as eight years of service as an Army E4 nutritional care specialist at Fort Lewis in Washington State.
Tiffanie appreciates being able to help people when they're not feeling well and seeing them leave a visit with hope. She feels it most important that patients feel heard and cared for. Tiffanie enjoys contributing to a sense of family in the clinic, where patients, staff, and providers often relate more closely than larger institutions.
Tiffanie co-parents four children in their Vancouver blended family household, where they occasionally share hiking in the Gorge, and beach time. They're all Harry Potter fans as well.
