Larisa Hammond


Larisa Hammond, CARN-AP, MSN, FNP-BC, was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and raised in Butte, Montana, a hard-rock mining town, where she developed a love for preventative, public healthcare, after witnessing first hand the generational effects of substance use and social disparities on individuals and families. She attended Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, obtaining her undergraduate degree in nursing, then completed her master’s degree in nursing in Addison, Illinois, at Chamberlain University. She spent nearly two decades working in public health, a career that afforded her opportunities to work alongside people and families struggling with addictions, mental illness, and access to care and she is excited to continue this work with 406 Recovery. She is a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, as well as several local advisory groups in her community. In her spare-time she loves to travel and read, and finds every opportunity to spend time with her family.  She is married and has four children—three of whom are married—and she has two granddaughters.
