Gena (Eugena) Foster’s Professional Bio:

Gena grew up on a farm in the woods in northern Minnesota, but is grateful she has called Lincoln her home for the past 21 years. She graduated with her practical nursing degree from Southeast Community College, Lincoln in 1997 and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Union College, Lincoln in 1999, where she received the award for “Clinical Excellence” in nursing. She completed her Masters of Science in nursing as a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2004. In 2013, Gena was honored to be  nominated by Dr. Gene Stohs as a Nurse Practitioner Nominee for the March of Dimes “Excellence in Nursing” award, and was then humbled to receive it.
Gena has a special place in her heart for empowering women to take care of their own bodies (self-love & respect of the amazing being that they are) as they transition into adults. She also enjoys the challenge of supporting women through the complex perimenopausal years, by replacing and balancing their hormones. She believes in supporting her clients with traditional as well as alternative forms of hormone replacement on their personal journey to “wellness”. Gena, loves young families and understands the intimate support new mothers need during the postpartum period, as well as the continued support mothers crave as they become a confident parent.
Gena is certified by the ASCCP in Colposcopy, board certified in Family Practice by the ANCC, past standing member of Sigma Theta Tau International-honor society for nurses, a member of the Nebraska Nurse Practitioners Association, and an active supporter of the Lincoln Community. “Lincoln is a great place to raise children and we have to keep it that way.” Gena and her husband enjoy a healthy “active” family life; filled with girls, box gardening, camping, water skiing, hiking, biking and running.

Global Mission Work: Gena is grateful she has been able to support women and children in Nicaragua and Haiti, by providing cervical cancer screening, primary and pediatric care, as well as prenatal, antenatal and delivery care. Gena has also enjoyed her teaching opportunities of Nursing and Physician Assistant students on medical mission trips to Nicaragua.
