Hello! My name is Lori Bonafede. I graduated from Marywood University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and in 2010 with a master’s degree in Nursing and Public Administration. In 2013, I earned a post master’s certificate from the University of Scranton’s Family Nurse Practitioner program.
I am a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) as well as a member of the local PA Coalition of Nurse Practitioners. Prior to joining the team of health professionals at Advanced Gynecological Associates, I worked for six years as a Registered Nurse in a pediatric/medical surgical department.
I have always loved being a nurse and decided to become a Nurse Practitioner in an effort to have more autonomy in caring for and treating my patients. It is a great feeling when I know that I have helped someone.
I am honored to be part of the team at Advanced Gynecological Associates. I am a firm believer in preventative medicine, and my current position in women’s health allows me to put these beliefs into action every day. Being a woman myself, I find that this field allows me to relate more closely with my patients.
I am originally from Scranton and continue to reside here with my husband and daughter.
