Emily Defourneaux, CRNP

Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner

Emily earned both her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and her Master of Science degree in nursing from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. Prior to joining our team, Emily worked as an emergency room nurse at Marshall Medical North in Guntersville, Alabama and as a staff nurse at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Huntsville, Alabama. Emily believes that one of the key ingredients to providing exceptional care comes through listening closely to patients and encouraging them to become equal partners in their care and treatment. For Emily, diagnosing and treating everything from common skin conditions to other diseases of the skin, including skin cancer, is her way to help care for the communities she serves here in Alabama. It’s one more thing that reminds her every day of the ability she has to help others through being a nurse.

She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, a licensed registered nurse with the state of Alabama and a member of the North Alabama Nurse Practitioner Association.

Outside of work Emily enjoys spending time with her daughter and family exploring downtown Huntsville and taking nature walks. As a Huntsville native she also enjoys attending all of the area’s wonderful local events and shopping at its great local markets.
