Brittany Davidson Fortie, NP
Nurse Practitioner

“Working in oncology feels natural to me. It easily became my passion. I don’t consider it a job, I think of it as spending the day with my second family. I try each day to make our patients feel at peace and comfortable during such a devastating time.”

Brittany lives in Rosedale, is married and has a 2-year old son named Braxton. She enjoys traveling, spending time with family, music and movies.
