Meet our nurse practitioner, Misty Moore-Ivy.
Mississippi native Misty Moore-Ivy received her Associates in Nursing from Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia, MS. She went on to graduate from Delta State University with her Masters of Nursing. Beginning her career, she worked as a traveling nurse where her first assignment took her to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical in Baltimore, MD. After three months there, she was assigned to St. Francis Medical Center-West in Ewa Beach, Hawaii.
While she loved Hawaii, she loved her work at Johns Hopkins more and applied for a permanent position there. She was hired as the nurse practitioner to manage the inpatient postsurgical care unit in the department of orthopedics. Her duties included caring for 15 to 20 patients a day, supervising new residents, and to first assist in orthopedic joint cases. She also worked as a research coordinator, studying effects of continuous nerve blocks on surgical outcomes as well as taught at Community College of Baltimore County and at Towson University.
In 2006 after being away from Mississippi for a few years, Misty decided to return home. She moved to Hernando, MS, and accepted a position at Semmes Murphey Neurology & Spine Institute in Memphis. She worked as surgical first assist and managed hospitalized neuro/neuro ICU patients.
In 2007, Misty made a huge career shift and jumped into dermatology. She accepted the position offered by Dr. Henson to work at Dermatology Clinic of N MS and has found her true passion. Misty loves all aspects of medical and cosmetic dermatology and is our resident cosmetic specialist.
Misty currently lives in Hernando with her husband, Josh, and their two children, Mattie Kate and Eli. She is an active member in her church and often sings on the praise team. She also enjoys purre barre and tennis.
