Rachel Armstrong RN, MSN, CPNP has always loved being around and helping kids.  She began babysitting at the age of 10, in a rural part of Iowa.  Once she decided to become a nurse, pediatrics is where she worked from the very beginning.  She worked in a hospital in Mesa and then as a school nurse before deciding to become a pediatric nurse practitioner.  By this time, she already had 10 years’ experience in nursing and had raised two sons in Show Low.  After working in different locations in the White Mountains, she has now relocated to the Rim Country full time to open her own practice in Payson.  She spent most weekends living part-time in Tonto Basin over the past 6 years and loved it so much that Payson seemed a great place to open an office.  Owning her own private practice has always been a dream of Rachel’s.  She strives to keep the healthcare of her patients personable and special in every way.  In her spare time, she enjoys watching her alma mater ASU football and spending time with family and friends in the woods, the lake or most anywhere outdoors. 

Rebecca Duncan MA has always had a special place in her heart for kids.  It began with babysitting during her Junior High years and then during High School she worked at the YMCA after school care.  After graduating from Chandler High School she went to school to become a Medical Assistant where her externship took place at a pediatric office and she instantly knew pediatrics was the place for her.  She worked at two different pediatric offices in Tempe and in Gilbert, then moved to Show Low to be close to family.  While living there she found a love for the outdoors and loved soaking it up whenever possible!  Rebecca lived in Show Low for 12 years, working pediatrics most of her years there and recently moved to the Payson area to join Rachel Armstrong at her new practice.  Rebecca has worked with Rachel in the past in Show Low so knew it was the best place for her and her family to be.  Rebecca is so excited for this opportunity to work alongside Rachel and can't wait to see new faces and meet new families.
