Team Tampa

“I love waking up on a Monday morning knowing that I get to start another week doing what I absolutely love. I am passionate about caring for the needs of this country’s most valuable, yet most vulnerable resource: our elderly. What makes my day even better is being able to work closely with families as well as facility staff to provide the highest level of care.” – Laura Williams

Kristen Matulis, ARNP

“My first introduction to geriatric medicine occurred when I was a child, as I watched a compassionate group of providers and nurses offer comfort to my grandfather at the end of his life. This established my desire to work with a dedicated team to provide care focused on preserving quality of life, and helping aging patients achieve their goals. It’s a privilege to be a provider with Bluestone, where each individual’s unique life story and set of challenges are heard, and met with empathy, so as to provide the highest level of care.” —Kristen Matulis

Heather Schleau, DNP

“Making a difference in people’s lives was my goal from an early age. A number of events in my life, including growing up in a family-owned assisted living facility, a career in acute inpatient‐based care of older adults and graduating top of my class at University of South Florida’s Adult‐Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program with a doctoral research project in transitions of care. I believe this is why the love, compassion and empathy I have for the older population has grown!” —Heather Schleau, DNP
