SUMMER CRUZ, FNC-P, APRN
ADVANCED PRACTICE PROVIDER
Growing up as the child of a nurse, the career of medicine felt second nature for Summer. She has always been fascinated by the human body and the technology and skill that is available to help repair its problems. Early in her career, she was a nurse in the trauma ICU and became fascinated by the field of neurosurgery. In 2022, Summer earned her Master of Science in nursing from Chamberlain University in Chicago.
What Summer enjoys most about working at Sierra Neurosurgery Group is meeting new patients and taking a part in their journey towards health. In her own words, “I love being able to help people improve themselves and heal.” She also enjoys the continuous learning and experiencing new challenges.
When not caring for patients, you might find Summer outside or at Lake Tahoe. She also enjoys reading and spending time with her family and dog.
