A skilled and dedicated nurse practitioner and board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, Mrs. Groller is currently licensed in four states.

In this position, she diagnoses patients and prescribes medication as indicated or recommends therapy.

Subsequently, she served as the manager of neurology from 2013 to 2018 and was a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (inpatient and outpatient during the COVID pandemic) from 2018 to 2021. In addition, Mrs. Groller had also dedicated time to teaching as a nursing instructor at Pennsylvania State University from 2014 to 2016.
Upon reflection, Ms. Groller considers her most notable achievement was her time working for St. Luke's Neurology, in which she helped grow the team from nine providers to 32, for a total of 70 providers including inpatient providers. She did that for three years, all while in college full-time to become a nurse practitioner. With this sentiment, she achieved a post-master's certificate in psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner from DeSales University in 2018.
To launch her career in health care, Ms. Groller earned an Associate of Science in Nursing from Northampton Community College in 1996. She went on to matriculate at Moravian University, where she achieved a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2010 and a Master of Science in Nursing Education in 2013.

Mrs. Groller also completed a mission trip to Honduras while attending Moravian College. She traveled with peers at Moravian College and took part in the MAMA Project-deworming project. She provided medical care and medication, poured cement floors in villager homes to prevent continued worm infestation due to living with mud floors and taught the villagers how to filter water using two 5-gallon buckets to provide clean drinking water in multiple different villages.
Mrs. Groller attributes her professional success to the support of husband, family, friends, educators and employers. She credits various mentors for their support and encouragement, including Dr. Hal Folander, in interventional radiology, Don Norder, a nurse manager, and Laura Dobrosielski-Hetrick, her partner in neurology. She also notes some of her professors, including Janet Sipple, Michelle August-Brady and Pam Adamshick.
To remain abreast of her field, Ms. Groller holds membership with the American Psychiatric Nurses Association and American Nurses Association. She is also a certified Reiki practitioner. Looking toward the future, Ms. Groller has goals to spearhead a practice as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. She also wants to continue to precept new nurse practitioners in the field.
