Graduated from Central in 2010 with a BS in biology with a specialization in cell and molecular and minor in chemistry. There after I challenged my test for the MLT certificate and received it in February of 2011. I am still continuing to go to school to get my master's in administrative management through Central.

I have lived in Ellensburg for almost 8 years and 2 years ago my wife and I bought a house. We plan to stay here for another several years and hopefully have children one day. I like to be outside working on the yard, except during the fall/winter when football season is on, than it's all about the Seahawks!

I was born and raised in Ellensburg and love calling it home! I attended CWU and graduated from YVCC nursing school as a Licensed Practical Nurse.  I have worked at Kittitas Valley Community Hospital in Med/Surg and OB for 5 years, a family practice clinic for 2 ½ years and with an orthopedic surgeon for 27 years.  My husband is also a local and we’ve been married for 38 years. We have a daughter and son-in-law, both graduates of CWU and are teachers on the west-side. I have a collie and two shelties (all tri-color). I enjoy gardening, the Oregon coast, snowmobiling and of course, shopping!

Registered Nurse
I graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in English. I then worked as a medical claims examiner for an insurance company in downtown Seattle.  I love the city and would often spend my lunch break at Pike Place Market.  I eventually started a medical billing service while living in Enumclaw, WA. During this time, HIPAA was made into law and I had to help implement it for my clients. I am now the HIPAA privacy officer for the Student Medical and Counseling Clinic.  In 2001, I sold my business and moved with our family to Ellensburg. I became a stay-at-home mom for the next 10 years. During this time, I spent a lot of time volunteering at the local schools and was busy with all the children’s various activities.  I eventually decided to go back to school and became an Registered Nurse.  During break I am often working at Ellensburg Pediatrics. I am currently the pediatric nurse consultant for the Early Childhood Learning Center at CWU. I enjoy watching Seahawks and Husky football,  and love going to games whenever possible.

Hi! I am Rita Bergevin and I started here in November. I am a CMA/MLT and have 30 plus years of experience working in Family Practice, Lab, and Pediatrics. I live here in Ellensburg with my husband Jim on a small ranch outside of town. Over the last few years, my spare time has been taken up by spending time with my grandkids. There are two more on the way which will make a total of five. I'm very excited to be here!
