Nancy Higbee



Adult/Holistic Nurse Practitioner

I am thrilled to be joining the talented team of the Westport Medical and Wellness Center! I am looking forward to our partnership together!


My passion is to provide thoughtful comprehensive medical care which embodies the needs of one's mind, body, and spirit. My goal is to be a partner in your care and to provide individualized medical care, with strategies for health and wellness, using holistic and traditional medical modalities.


I have practiced internal medicine/ primary care at a Yale-New Haven Hospital outpatient internal medicine practice for over 10 years. I have also worked in Public health as a visiting nurse in Manhattan for many years. I have been privileged to have the opportunity to be closely involved in years of direct patient care which has given me the experience to assist with medical problems and provide support as well as holistic strategies to treat anxiety and depression which people face daily. I understand how people live and family situations. I try to bring joy and a realistic, unique plan of care to my patients. I am optimistic that we can work together through difficult experiences. I embody gratitude on a daily basis through lifestyle and personal thoughts/affirmations.


I am a fond graduate of New York University where I earned both a Master's Degree in Public Administration and a Master of Science Degree as an Adult and Holistic Nurse Practitioner. I am board certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and am duly licensed as a Nurse Practitioner in New York and Connecticut.


My hobbies include emotional and physical fitness, aromatherapy, adventuring, travel, skiing, sailing, beach vacations, and connecting with nature during walks. I enjoy dogs and gardening, my friends and colleagues, and spending time with my two grown children. I love to smile and laugh, listen to music, ride my Peleton, and listen to podcasts. I love the learning process and consider myself to be very open-minded. I look forward to meeting you!
