Ms. Edith Kanyongo, PMHNP, DNP began her experience as a nurse in mental health care over 10 years ago. Her desire to be part of the entire continuum of care led her to return to school to pursue a degree as a nurse practitioner in 2013. She received her Doctor of Nursing Practice in May of 2018.

Ms. Kanyongo has a passion for patient advocacy and enjoys being part of the entire care process for her patients. Her years of experience in psychiatric care have made her a compassionate and sensitive caregiver who understands the nature of mental healthcare.

She is a proud member of academic honor societies including Sigma Theta Tau and Golden Key International honor society. She also served as a mentor and tutor to fellow nursing students. Ms. Edith Kanyongo has dedicated her entire career and education to the service of others and will continue that level of dedication with Premier Behavioral Healthcare.
