Kristin J. Mellein, ARNP

Registered Nurse Practitioner in Tacoma, WA

Kristin has a background in family medicine with broad experience in complex healthcare across the lifespan.  She developed a passion to provide care in the oncology setting and hasn’t looked back.   Since joining NWMS she has worked with patients across a variety of cancer diagnoses and hematologic malignancies, with a special interest in breast cancer and bone marrow procedures.  She is a life-long learner and is inspired by the constantly evolving science of cancer care.

“I focus on partnering with individuals through their health journey, building relationships, empowering people to make informed decisions, and providing thoughtful care”.

Outside of work, she loves being outdoors in the Pacific Northwest, both in the mountains and on the water, adventuring with her kids.
