Julane Belcher, FNP

My name is Julane Belcher, FNP. I am excited to join Bream Medical as a full time primary care provider! Let me take a few minutes to introduce myself. I was born and raised right here in Northeastern NC. I graduated from Perquimans County High school in 2001, went on to pursue my education at Meredith College earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2005.

Then in 2007, I became a registered nurse and began my career in healthcare while at the same time continuing my education part time at East Carolina University and completing a Master’s in Nursing in 2012. Right after graduating in 2012,  I started working at Vidant Women’s Care in Edenton as a family nurse practitioner. I was there for over 11 years providing quality care to women throughout their lifespan.

In my free time, I love spending quality time with my two children ages 8 and 12. I also enjoy my little farm where we currently have many furry critters as we like to call them- 5 horses, a donkey, two geese, many chickens, bunnies, and a pet dog.

I am excited to announce that I am now starting with Bream Medical this October and looking forward to this new opportunity to provide patient centered, quality care to our community.
