“Helping people with their mental health is very rewarding. Across the country and very much locally, the demand for this type of care is significantly high,” said Payton. “Through compassion and sensitivity, I want to help as many patients as I can, deal with their challenging conditions.”

With over 30 years of experience in the nursing profession, Payton earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree from Ball State University where she also completed her Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate.
