Constance Trollan

Constance Trollan, ARNP, RNC

Constance Trollan, ANP and Owner, started Wellspring in 1990. She sought to render the Juneau community an integrated model of health care focusing on the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of wellness. Throughout her nursing she has focused on person-centered care, rather than on a simple pathology to be diagnosed, treated or rehabilitated. She also emphasizes the teaching of health care practices as a means of preventing disease and illness. Constance is a major proponent of Reiki care - a therapy for restoring harmony within the body’s energy centers to prevent disease, balance energy and reduce stress. Constance has also served as a senior nurse consultant for Project Hope in Romania and as the international director for Help the Children of Romania. She currently oversees a family parish program in Oradea, Romania which feeds the poor in the parish and provides necessary household items. Constance was awarded the Nurse Practitioner of the year award in 2008 by the Alaska Nurse Practitioner Association.
