Healing Mind, Body & Spirit

Tanecia Webster, MSN, ANP, grew up on the Kenai Peninsula and decided to enter the medical field after losing a close loved one to cancer. She left the state to complete her education and obtain clinical experience, then returned home to Alaska to make a difference in the community she loves. With a passion to help people achieve wellness, Tanecia has become known for being a truly compassionate provider. With over a decade of medical experience, she decided to take the next step and opened the doors to River Health & Wellness, LLC in 2019.

In order to start the next exciting chapter of her professional career off strongly, Tanecia worked with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (Alaska SBDC) in Soldotna during the start-up process. 

As every entrepreneur knows, a start-up takes strategy, passion, and tenacity. Tanecia brought all of this and more to the table and about her experience shared, “The assistance I received from the Alaska SBDC was crucial to the start of my medical practice. Being a business owner was never a part of the future I envisioned for myself, however, after unforeseen circumstances, Cliff was there to provide the guidance, reassurance, knowledge base and experience to help me understand where to begin in this new endeavor. I am beyond thankful to the Alaska SBDC, but especially Cliff Cochran because his value in this process was immeasurable.”

On working with Tanecia on her journey, Cliff shared, “Tanecia has done a fantastic job narrowing down a wide range of options to the best fit for not only herself but also her patients.  It’s been refreshing to see that throughout this process, her top concern has always been for her patients.  I’m very impressed with how she’s switched gears on the fly and now started one of the best new medical practices on the peninsula.”

Tanecia and the Alaska SBDC received excellent support from Tim Dillon and the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District. KPEDD was able to provide River Health & Wellness with a microloan within several weeks of application, creating a smooth transition during the cash flow crunch experienced by medical start-ups.
