Psychiatry in Cumming, Georgia Susan Player, NP

Susan Player, NP

I am an advanced practice registered nurse with a variety of experiences in medical/surgical, psychiatric and project management experience in the arena of nursing care and administration in both civilian and military populations. I graduated from the University of South Caroline for my undergraduate degree in 1979, worked in patient care in Charleston, SC in a variety of hospital settings until I entered into the USAF in 1988, I served on Active Duty until 1991. I worked in NIH in various settings until 1994 when I got my Master’s degree and got married and I transitioned to the FDA and worked as a project manager for several years in the centers for Biologics and then Psychiatric medications. I divorced in 2004 and moved back to the south in Atlanta and worked in 2 separate pharmaceutical companies. I wanted to fulfill my dream of working in a private practice and took a job offering in Cumming with a psychiatrist in 2009. I have been in this private practice ever since, working with a variety of patients with different psychiatric disorders. I work with both men and women with anxiety, depression, OCD, Bipolar Disorders. Schizophrenia and other psychoses with medication management. I love what I do. I am hoping to make it until age 70, in 4 years, so that I can retire. I am still divorced and single and I love my life. I love being involved with sighthound rescue and have 4 dogs that are my children. I also love horses and one day hope to get back to riding dressage again. I love using all of the therapy modalities to help patients to get to and maintain a high quality of life.
