Edward Thran
Director of Wellness

Hello I'm Eddie and originally from Northeastern Nevada, however I've been in Prescott the past 11 years. I received my nursing degree 15 years ago and still enjoy every bit of it. I spend my "free" time trying to keep my old house standing and throwing a ball for my dogs. I was in and out of Alta Vista for a couple of years as a visiting nurse and readily accepted a full time position here when it became available as I always found it a "happy place" to visit via the residents as well as the staff.
