Hannah NG, NP
Hannah was born and raised in Seattle. Ms. Ng earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington Medical Technology. Upon graduation, Hannah gained experience working at Core Laboratory at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle and subsequently pursued her nursing degree at Emory University in Atlanta. We love Hannah’s passion! Her sole purpose for becoming a nurse practitioner simply revolved around a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. Her flair for educating patients and caring for them with compassion makes her a top-notch provider.
Hannah’s background is in chronic pain management in skilled nursing facilities and in an outpatient setting. Her goal is to provide treatments using a multi-modal approach which includes medication management and interventions.
In her down time Hannah can be found on the badminton or volleyball courts, dishing up new recipes in her kitchen or reading a good book. She’ll tell you she’s also determined to become a good skier. When you come by the office, make sure you say hello to Hannah, where she’ll welcome you with a warm smile.
Oksana Kozub, RN
Oksana came to the United States as a young adult, married, and with a 3-year old son. She diligently pursued an education in the medical field, graduating with high honors from Tacoma Community College Nursing Program. She then transferred to the University of Washington where she graduated with faculty honors and received her BSN.
Her valued nursing experience includes Medical Surgical, Ortho Surgical, Health screening and flu vaccinations, and outpatient ketamine infusion.
Ms Kozub brings passion and performance to each day. She enjoys becoming acquainted and as a result, providing patients with more personalized care.
On Oksana’s off days you can find her gardening, baking, reading & traveling. She loves spending time with her family. When we asked her what her favorite quote is, she’ll tell you ‘Treat others as you want them to treat you.” (Matthew 7:12).’ This is the principle I try to follow through my life whatever role I’m in. I do believe that all compassions and kindness that I give to others will return to me one day when I will need it.
Mika Mendoza, RN
Meet Mika Mendoza, RN. We’re so pleased to have Mika join our team. Ms. Mendoza hails from Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Manila is a densely populated bayside city on the island of Luzon and quite a departure from Bellevue, WA. She came to Acute & Chronic Pain Therapies to work with patients and assist them on their healing journey to becoming pain free. In her downtime, Mika spends time with family, enjoying the change of seasons, cooking and playing games together. If you ask her what her life’s philosophy is, she’ll say, “It can be summed up in one verse from Philippians 4:13, ‘I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
After a lifetime of moving around the west Shirleen settled in Seattle in the early 80’s. The beautiful pacific northwest quickly became home and she eventually raised three daughters here. In 2000, Shirleen remarried and was fortunate to add another daughter to the “squad” who won GOLD in the 2002 Winter Olympics. Needless to say she beams with pride whenever asked about her children.
Grandma is another cherished role she plays in the family – ‘Mim’ is the name she answers to whenever any of her four grandchildren call out to her! She has one grandson who is sadly out-numbered by three granddaughters (#smartgirlsrule!) They are active and charming – and she says, one of the best gifts in life.
Her varied nursing career over the past 41 years with stints in med-surgery, oncology, sports medicine, family practice, home health and school nursing really got our attention. As a valuable member of our team, she truly understands the intricacies of providing a special patient experience.
When Shirleen is not working she’s creating: paper, yarn, fabric and even a garden are her canvases. When we asked her what her favorite quote is she recited Maya Angelou, “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be!” We agree! Normal is overrated.
Katie DeHaan, Office Manager
We’re thrilled that Katie joined our team at the beginning of 2019. She hails from Bridgeton, born and raised in the beautiful garden state of New Jersey where she began her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant and also became an injection coordinator before pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Katie serves as our front office manager and she’s the first person you’ll encounter upon visiting Acute Pain Therapies. Katie’s warmth and eagerness to provide compassionate care is evident and her love for nursing shines through in all that she does. Uneasy about an upcoming procedure? Katie can put your mind at ease. Questions about insurance? Ask Katie – if she doesn’t know the answer she’ll find it.
When she’s not at work Katie enjoys spending time with her family – she has two children, ages 14 & 11 and four step-children, ages 9, 13, 17 and 20. There’s never a dull moment – whether she’s enjoying movie night with her husband and kids or out walking their playful, yellow Labrador retriever (Hannah) she keeps busy with home, family, school and work!
