Kristen Yekaitis-Page, MSN, NP-C

Kristen Yekaitis-Page was born in New Rochelle, New York, but spent most of her childhood reared in Pearl, Mississippi.  She graduated with cum laude honors from the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.  After passing her nursing boards, she became a registered nurse and worked in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at UMMC for over 5 years. It was during this time that she gained valuable experience in neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, pulmonology, and critical care medicine.

Mrs. Page moved to Waco, Texas and worked at Providence Health Center in the emergency room, cardiac catheterization/electrophysiology lab, congestive heart failure clinic, and in the nuclear cardiology department. She also worked at a local cardiology office and their catheterization lab. She felt called to pursue higher education and graduated with a perfect grade point average from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) with a Master of Science in Nursing. She became adjunct faculty at UMHB teaching nursing students and became certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner from the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Kristen recently moved back to Mississippi, living in Olive Branch, where she has worked as a nurse practitioner at a local rehabilitation center and a family practice center. She has dual nurse practitioner licensure in Mississippi and Tennessee.  She is married to Daniel Page and they have three children, Rachel, Anna, and Sarah.

In her spare time, Mrs. Page enjoys spending time with her family and friends and participating in church-related activities. She has had the privilege of attending numerous medical mission trips to El Salvador and Honduras and looks forward to more in the future. She is excited to become part of the team at Semmes Murphey Clinic working with Dr. Kenan Arnautovic and Dr. Jason Weaver.
