Job TitleNurse Practitioner
EducationUndergraduate: Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, TN, South University, Savannah, GA Graduate: South University, Savannah, GA
I began my career began as a labor and delivery nurse. Four years later, I decided to further my education and obtained my Bachelor of Science degree from South University in Savannah, Georgia while continuing my career as a labor and delivery nurse. Finally, I decided to advance my education once more and successfully earned my Master of Science degree in Nursing from South University. I am currently certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
On a personal note, I am a wife and mother of six children. I recently moved to Chattanooga and love it here! I understand that as women life often pulls us in many directions, all at once. I was a teenage mother and I know the stress of working night shifts and going to school full time while taking care of a family. That being said, I can truly understand the importance for women to take the time to care for themselves.
I am passionate about women’s health and empowering women to participate in their own healthcare. I truly believe patients benefit when they are more involved in their own care and decision making.

Maria I Eargle
Job TitleLicensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
EducationAssociates Degree in Practical Nursing and Bachelors in Psychology
Experience1 Year of Experience
First of all, I am a mother of two boys who are my world. I graduated in Psychology from the University of Knoxville, Tennesse and worked in that field for many years. After that, I went into sales and enjoyed it very much. I married, had my boys and the privilege to stay home with them while they were younger and was so thankful for that time. Once the boys started school, I felt that there was something missing from my life, something for me... I had said that in the past that if I could go back and do it all again I would go into medicine, so here I am. I have always loved medicine because my father is a physician who I have always looked up to as my mentor. I buckled down, juggled full-time school and with the help of god, my friends and family here I am.
