“Endocrinology is a good platform to mix the art and the science of medicine.”
As a certified Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, Ms. Anslow treats patients from 14 years old to the end of life. She has a keen interest in diabetes care, especially as part of a team of clinicians and educators.

Ms. Anslow says endocrinology is a good fit for her because it is largely driven by objective data. “I like to help patients understand what is happening to them by using straightforward explanations for complex illnesses. That’s the nurse in me.” She decided to become a nurse practitioner to have more of an “upstream impact” on patient care. “I was lucky to study at UC San Francisco where there were some excellent geriatricians to help shape my thinking about gerontology.”
She says she tries to tap into patients’ motivations to help them achieve their health goals. “My patients have told me that I am a great listener. I try to really hear what people say when they are talking to me.”
Ms. Anslow has a horse and a dog and loves long-distance backpacking, once hiking an 800-mile stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail. “I recommend that adventure to anyone who is willing to try it!”
