My name is Heather Hammack

Heather Hammack is a local Family Nurse Practitioner. Born in laurel County, Heather experienced a simple and blessed childhood. Her grandparents owned and worked a dairy farm for many years, which allowed Heather to spend many days surrounded by so much of the beauty that Kentucky offers.


She is a graduate of North Laurel High School and an Alumni of both Somerset Community College and the University of the Cumberlands.  Her education includes a Certification in Nursing Assistance, a Diploma of Nursing, an Associates of Applied Science, an Associates Degree in Nursing, a bachelor’s degree of Science in Nursing and a master’s degree of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner. Her experience in healthcare includes intensive care, neurosurgical intensive care, medical-surgical, rehabilitation, home health, opioid and addiction rehabilitation, post-partum, utilization management, public health and family practice. She is certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse.


At a young age, Heather dreamed of becoming a nurse and caring for others. Throughout high school her goal was to enter a nursing program immediately after graduation. She persevered and pushed toward her goal of one day practicing in a family health clinic. Many years and a few degrees later, she is utilizing her expertise to provide that exact type of care to the families in rural Kentucky.  Heather also serves as an adjunct Professor of Nursing at the University of the Cumberlands.


Heather, along with her husband and two children still reside in Laurel County. They enjoy serving at church in both worship and youth ministries.  They enjoy camping, hiking and can be found jeeping the backroads of the state that they love!
