Meet Kirsti

Registered nurse Kirsti Davis manages the Medication Assisted Treatment program at Citizen Advocates’ Ogdensburg Behavioral Health Urgent Care Center. Medication Assisted Treatment, or MAT, combines medication and counseling to provide a holistic addiction treatment approach. “I enjoy MAT because it helps me with my own well-being,” Kirsti explains. “It lets me use my knowledge and experience to help folks.”

Kirsti feels a strong sense of purpose working for Citizen Advocates. “I became a nurse to make a difference in people’s lives. That’s what we do here every day,” she says. “The good things, the positive things, they’re everywhere.”

When Kirsti’s not working, she enjoys going on trips, crafting and writing fiction.
