Becky Naughton MSN, FNP-C, WCC
Board Director Wound Care


Becky received her BSN from the University of Vermont, where along with a love of nursing, she picked
up a love of hiking and cross-country skiing. She moved to MA and started to work as a med-surg nurse
at a busy Boston hospital. There, she found that she loved mentoring new nurses and returned to
school to earn her MSN as an acute care clinical nurse specialist from the University of MA, Boston. She
followed her love of teaching into both the acute, sub-acute and university setting, but she found that
she missed working directly with patients. She returned to school and earned her Post-Master's Family
Nurse Practitioner Certification from Rivier University. It was shortly after this that Becky discovered her
love for wound care. She worked part time in wound care and part time in family care while she earned
her WCC certification. After several years, Becky decided to take her practice to the next level by
opening her own LLC and is currently seeing patients for wound care and regenerative medicine. Becky's
philosophy of “Never stop learning” has guided her in her practice and life. Her very supportive husband
and daughter are her key inspirations to keep growing and trying new things. In her spare time, Becky
loves traveling with her family, going on long walks in the forest with her dog, Echo, and is always
dabbling with different hobbies, such as woodworking and landscaping.
