Kristina Pasquella-Jordan
Executive Director
Kristina has been part of the Pocatello Free Clinic team for a little over three years now. She first joined the organization as the clinic nurse and has recently accepted the Executive Director position. She is excited about the challenges and growth expected from the job. Prior to her position at the Pocatello Free Clinic, Kristina worked in pathology where it sparked her interest in health care and opened her up to a population who's needs were going unmet, those who are underserved. Since this time, Kristina has dedicated her career to serving that very unique demographic. Kristina moved from Connecticut to Idaho at age six and attended Highland High School and graduated from Idaho State University in 2015 with her CMA degree. Kristina enjoys spending time with her husband and her four-year-old son. Kristina states, "I am passionate about serving our clinics demographic and community. I hope to change individuals perceptions about those who are underserved."
Cynthia Bunde
MPAS, PA-C - Physician Assistant
For a little over two years, Cindy has been the staff healthcare provider here at the Pocatello Free Clinic. As a physician assistant (PA), she performs patient exams, orders and interprets labs, conducts minor procedures and prescribes medications and other treatments to patients. She especially loves educating patients on their health and jointly finding solutions to help them feel better and live longer, more functional lives. Cindy has been a PA for 17 years, with experience in psychiatry, women's health, family medicine and has taught full-time at Idaho State University for several years. She is a Pocatello native, loves to read, cook, crochet, and enjoys outdoor activities with her two kids and husband. Cindy states, "the art and practice of medicine is so much more than prescribing pills - it's offering comfort, listening, negotiating, educating, being a cheerleader and an advocate. It's so rewarding when I see blood pressures normalize, migraines resolve, depression lift and blood sugars return to normal. I enjoy our patients' diverse personalities, backgrounds and health needs, and appreciate their gratitude. I feel so lucky to love my job and work with a staff and volunteers equally committed to our mission to provide healthcare to those without insurance."
Jake Egbert
Nursing Assistant
After nearly a decade in the Navy, Jake has come back home to Idaho. He is currently working towards a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing at Idaho State University. He sees two potential career paths open to him after graduation, 1) rejoining the Navy as a nurse and retire, or 2) run for the hills and practice nursing in Alaska. As far as the clinic goes, Jake joined a few months ago as the clinic's nursing assistant. Part of this role is administering the Prescription Assistance Program at the clinic. More information about prescription assistance can be found here.
Cassie LeBeau
Dental Clinic Director
Cassie joined the Pocatello Free Clinic two years ago as the dental clinic manager, and has rapidly grown the clinic in both meeting regulation and in the practice of care. She has been crucial in revamping the entire dental clinic and dental partnership with Idaho State University and other surrounding dental practices. One of the many accomplishments Cassie has in regards to the clinic includes a complete overhaul of the documentation systems used in the dental clinic. Now, the dental clinic is using an up to data electronic medical record system to assist in keeping track of patient data, appointments, etc.
Dillon Webb
IT Manager
"I'm a first generation college graduate with a thirst for knowledge, a desire to succeed, and motivation to change the world. I've worked in Information Technology in one way or another for about 7 years, 10 if you include the time I spent learning to type and navigate (and break) Windows 95. However, at the ripe age of 21, I now work as the senior technician at Portneuf Medical Center; and manage a small consulting firm on the side. The Pocatello Free Clinic provided me with the basis of instructional implementation that made my position at Portneuf possible. Throughout my time at the clinic we've been able integrate an Electronic Medical Record system, a comprehensive collaboration suite for all employees, and an identity management provider. All while operating inside various regulatory requirements (lemme tell you, that's a fun time)."
