Dr. Flamm earned her BSN from Franklin University in Columbus, OH, her MSN from Wright State University in Dayton, OH, and her DNP in 2014 from The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. As a registered nurse, she has held a variety of positions including bedside patient care in acute and critical care settings, population care, teaching and administrative positions. As a nurse practitioner, she has provided primary care in both family practice and internal medicine settings. She has also managed the care of patients in the emergency department’s observational unit and urgent care.

While earning her DNP, Dr. Flamm also worked for Ohio State’s College of Nursing as the opening and managing director of the University’s first HRSA-funded and NP-led interprofessional clinic. This clinic has been instrumental in decreasing multiple risk factors for a group of diverse and underserved patients on the near east side of Columbus with multiple chronic medical conditions and co-morbidities.

Dr. Flamm has presented publicly on topics of interprofessional practice, patient-centered care, care of diverse patients in an NP-led clinic, team-based care of patients with chronic diseases and initiation of an NP-led interprofessional practice. She has been active as part of a national AHRQ steering committee entitled "Evaluating the Knowledge and Educational Needs of Students of Health Professions on Patient-Centered Outcomes Research" and is a member of the Zeta Phi chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International. Her interests include interprofessional collaborative practice and education, patient-centered care and evidence-based practice.
