Katrina De Romana – MSN, Family Nurse Practitioner
Hello, I am Katrina De Romana and I have been a nurse for 27 years. I have 4 children and my husband is the office manager. I am from central Illinois and attended Illinois Wesleyan University for my Bachelors degree in Nursing. I have a large family in Illinois and we visit there often. I moved to Pueblo, Colorado in 1991 where I worked in a Level I trauma center ER as a lead clinic nurse and nurse educator for many years. My family and I moved to Castle Rock in 2004 and I worked at University Hospital in the Surgical ICU while pursuing my nurse practitioner degree. In 2007, I graduated from the University of Colorado- Anschutz Campus with my Family Nurse Practitioner post Master’s certificate. Since then I have worked in several settings providing primary care for patients of all ages.
As a nurse in the ER and ICU settings, I saw terrible chronic illnesses that were poorly controlled and people who were desperate for good primary care. I became a Nurse Practitioner so that I could help prevent the consequences of chronic disease and help folks stay OUT of the ER and ICU’s as much as possible. My patients find that I am a listener, teacher, promoter of good health and preventive care services, and as an Advanced Practice Nurse can diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses commonly seen in a family practice setting. I will advocate for you with other healthcare providers when needed and refer to specialists when appropriate.

Elizabeth Jansens – Receptionist
Hello, I’m Elizabeth. I am originally from Michigan. Born and raised in the U.P. I met my husband of 21 years in Grand Rapids. And I am a very proud mother of one boy and 2 girls. We love pets so our family extends to a horse, 2 dogs, and a cat. We relocated from Michigan to Colorado for my husband’s work. We enjoy all that Colorado has to offer since we are big outdoors people. We love to camp, hunt, fish, hike, and kayak.
The majority of my work history has been medical related. Most of which has been in the optometry field where I worked as an optician, ophthalmic technician, medical billing specialist, and became NCLE certified. I am very blessed to have become a part of Heartlight Family Clinic. I think you will like it to.
