Being a member of the  Nurse Practitioner’s Council of Palm Beach County for the last 5 yrs or so has shown me the good of what us NPs can do for our community. Here, we have formed a family and have given support to one another. I feel that with my experience of working in various hospitals and with my peers has given me the experience to fulfill the role of Secretary to the Council. I look forward to working with the board and dedicating my time to support our great organization.

Chris Coffman (Orton), Ph.D., FNP-BC

I am interested in being more involved in our Council because I would like to support the council in a more integral way. Being a member of the PBNP Council since 2012 and seeing it grow not only with the local NP’s in the area, but also in the community at large has been exciting. Working in academia has given me experience in taking minutes and ensuring they are recorded in the correct area and format. I feel this experience would allow me to be an effective Secretary for the Palm Beach Nurse Practitioner Council. 

Diana Perez-Nunez, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, FNP-C

I am a dual-certified nurse practitioner, specializing in psychiatry and family practice. I take great pride in being a nurse practitioner as my heart is to serve. I was fortunate to attend a graduate program, where that fostered the importance of advocating for our profession and “giving back.” I would count it a great privilege to serve on the board! I served as membership coordinator for APNA. I recently started my own practice, which I am thoroughly enjoying, because I am finally able to provide the type of care that I myself would want, as a patient.

I would like to take this opportunity and extend my deepest gratitude to have again been nominated to run for the treasurer position. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as the past treasurer and would be honored to again, if elected, to serve this term as treasurer.  



Katie Diamond DNP, APRN, ANP-BC, CDCES, BC-ADM- Incumbent

I'm interested in continuing to serve as the NP Council of Palm Beach County's conference chair. I have run the last two conferences and look forward to continuing to serve local NPs by organizing our yearly conference with the support of the conference committee.
