Portrait of Tammie Sherner

Tammie Sherner joined the School of Nursing in 2021 after a career in the hospital setting, both in psychiatry and oncology. Her clinical expertise and education is the field of Psycho-Oncology, the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of behavioral health concerns within the context of Oncology.

Her graduate work focused on measuring distress within the oncology patient population. Whether it be depression, anxiety, grief or a pre-existing mental illness, she believes it is vitally important to address the holistic needs of the patient and families living in the world of cancer.

As a certified Death Doula and co-leader of the Boise Death Cafe, Tammie believes in opening the doors, and talking about end of life issues. “You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.” Dame Cicely Saunders, founder of the Modern Hospice.

Tammie is a proud board member of Casting for Recovery, Southwestern Idaho and Expedition Inspiration, both programs for breast cancer survivors and their families.

In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, running, travel. She is a proud mom of a BSN, RN and a soon to be PsychD.
