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 preforms 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."

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.

I have been able to witness the struggles shared by so many in our community and work towards a solution for these individuals. It will be a long road, but change is possible even with the smallest of actions. Never underestimate what the "little things" can contribute to a community or to an individual. I look forward to continuing strengthening the clinic and provide social services that are desperately needed within our community."

This program will be a great resource for the patients by helping them to adapt to their environment and gain healthier lifestyles."
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)."
