Debbie Gale is a nurse practitioner with certifications in both acute care and family medicine. Prior to joining Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery in 2004, she worked in the Portland area in research and provided on-board medical care for merchant seamen. She believes that medical care should be collaborative with the patient taking an active role in decision-making, prevention, and recovery. To achieve this, Debbie emphasizes patient education and takes the time to answer her patients’ questions thoroughly.

In her off hours, Debbie enjoys skiing, snowboarding, weight lifting, motorcycles, mountain biking, and travel.
