Terri Roberts, FNP-C

A native of Chatham, Louisiana, Terri Ewing, FNP-C, received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in December 2006.  During that time, she was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society.  Following graduation, she immediately pursued her Master of Science in Nursing degree at Northwestern State University while working as an RN at the Winn Parish Medical Center in the emergency department.  She completed her master’s degree with Northwestern in May 2010 and is certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.  She has continued her work with the emergency department and was welcomed to the Winn Community Health Center team in April 2012.  She cares for patients at the Winn Community Health Center’s main office.  She is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.  Terri and her husband, Andy, are the proud parents of twin girls, Sadie and Sarah, one son, Owen, and reside in Winn Parish.

Jennette Bergstedt-Cormier, MD

Dr. Jennette Bergstedt-Cormier received her degree in Pediatrics from the Louisiana State University-Shreveport campus. Board-certified since 1994, Bergstedt-Cormier was the chief resident of the LSUS Medical Center before moving to Sulphur in 1995. “I’ve always loved children,” she said. “But what really drew me to this profession was in school at LSUS. While in the early stages of study, you try many different kinds of medicine, and I just clicked with Pediatrics immediately.” After having the responsibility of a private practice for several years, in Lake Charles, La, she was ready to slow things down a little bit.  Bergstedt-Cormier most wants to establish that connection with her young patients and their parents. “I like trying to see the entire family picture,” she said. “It’s a team effort to care for a child. I’m here to help you and advise you.” Getting behind family model of WCHC is a welcome change from practicing in a bigger city.
