Despite her years of medical training and experience, family nurse practitioner Jaime Pimental wants her patients to know that she can relate to them. "I work and have a family, and I struggle with balancing work, life and health just like everyone does," Jaime said. "I know how important it is to listen to and treat my patients with respect, and to understand them and their families."
Jaime has plenty of experience to draw on to help her patients achieve better health. "Before I became a nurse practitioner, I worked as a pharmacy tech," she shared. "I have always asked 'why' when it comes to medications being chosen and watched carefully to understand how each patient reacts to a chosen course of treatment."
While the focus of her early career was on medications, Jaime now enjoys focusing on helping her patients lead healthier lives. "I love encouraging wellness and health promotion," she said. "I always do my best to help patients set health care goals that are attainable, and important to them patients and their families."
Jaime and her husband, Jon, have two children. "We love spending time with our son and daughter regardless of what we're doing," she shared. "We have fun on vacation or just lounging around the house. The kids are involved in a lot of sports, so we are often watching their games.
"And, since I am from Charlotte, we are fortunate to have much of our extended family close by," Jaime continued. "We all love spending lots of time together."
