Mrs. Keesha Holden-White, MSN, FNP-C, is the proud owner and family nurse practitioner of OC Wellness LLC. She is a native of Maryland's Eastern Shore who currently resides and practices in Salisbury, Maryland. Keesha specializes in providing quality and compassionate primary care services to patients ages 16 and older.
Keesha is proud of her career path and professional health care experiences. She has over 21 years of dedicated health care experiences including direct patient care and leadership roles. As a family nurse practitioner, she has practiced in primary and long-term care, weight management, and urgent care settings and is passionate about delivering quality patient care, education, and improving health outcomes.
Keesha graduated from Salisbury University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Respiratory Therapy. Her career as a Respiratory Therapy started at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Eventually, she honey-mooned as a respiratory therapist at Anne Arundel Medical Center where she further developed her skills in their neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). She continued respiratory therapy for several years before returning to Salisbury University to pursue a Bachelor of Science, Nursing in 2003. The transition from Respiratory Therapy to Nursing was an amazing journey. Having worked in multiple specialties within the Peninsula Regional Health System - emergency department, mental health unit, endoscopy, it became evident while in the cardiothoracic and surgical intensive care units that she found her true love and passion for providing care to patients across the lifespan. "During the old ICU days" is when she paired her respiratory therapy experiences with her nursing clinical skills while working alongside the best and brightest of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, nurses and respiratory therapists, and nursing assistants. So much so, that she decided to further her career path in hopes of helping to heal the sick and vulnerable. In 2014 she graduated from Wilmington Unviversity with a Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and soon after completed a Post-Masters Certificate, Family Nurse Practitioner. Keesha received her certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). She accepted a position at a local skilled nursing and longterm care facility where she worked until landing her first family practice role with Peninsula Regional Family Medicine, the Eastern Shore's largest healthcare system.
Keesha has demonstrated throughout her professional roles that her number one objective is to make her patients feel respected and free to openly discuss all aspects of their care. This factor is essential in order to provide comprehensive care that the patient deserves. Her desire to be able to give each patient the time and attention they so rightfully deserve, prompted the realization and dream of opening her own family practice office. Her motto is "Patients First". Working together for the better good for the community, while maintaining one's integrity and good work ethic are key elements of the mission and value system that is upheld here at OC Wellness LLC.
