Georgette Oosting, FNP
Georgette joins our practice after completing her Family Nurse Practitioner degree at Dominican College. Georgette was a mother-baby nurse and lactation consultant at New York Presbyterian-Cornell for 12 years prior to joining us. She also works at New York Presbyterian-Columbia as a Nurse Educator in the Nursing Professional Development department. Georgette grew up in California with parents who resembled Sonny and Cher (according to unearthed photographs) and her identical twin younger brothers who were constantly wrestling each other before coming to the east coast (Massachusetts) at 18 years old to au pair. After a year caring for her two adorable charges, she enrolled at Regis College in Weston, MA and got her BA in English. During that time she studied abroad in London where she met Rudi, her husband of 18 years (and counting!) who was stationed there with the Marine Corps. The intrepid couple eventually settled in Rudi's home town in New Jersey where they still reside. A homebirth mom of four active, hilarious, and precious children, Georgette enjoys running for the joy of it, exercising for the burn of it, and is a yoga enthusiast. She cooks dinner 7 nights a week and sometimes her kids eat it. Georgette loves to read for fun and to learn and try new things. The philosophy she hopes to impart most to her children is that their job is to learn, grow, and leave the nest confident in their ability to succeed here on earth.
