Meet our healthcare providers

Dr. Tia Cloke

Family Nurse Practitioner

After a 2020 wildfire destroyed her rural clinic in Blue River, Ore., Dr. Tia Cloke didn’t stop serving patients. Instead, she moved her practice into a vacant restaurant and kept working.

These days, we’re fortunate to have this exceptional family nurse practitioner caring for patients at Ko-Kwel Wellness Center-Eugene. With a doctoral degree in nursing practice from the University of Iowa, Tia has dedicated her career to treating chronic and acute conditions in underserved populations.

She has been certified by the America Academy of Nurse Practitioners since 2013.

Dr. Antonia Perez

Family Nurse Practitioner

Born and raised in the rural Texas Panhandle, Dr. Antonia “Toni” Perez brings rich experience to her job as a family nurse practitioner.

Before earning her doctorate in nursing practice from the University of Texas at Austin, she worked as a trauma nurse and interim director for a Level I trauma center in the Washington, D.C., region. She was also a nurse educator and worked in a critical care/cardiovascular intensive care unit.

Her work as a family nurse practitioner includes serving marginalized populations in the D.C. area. In Texas, she cared for refugees who had fled conflicts in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

In the summer of 2022, she is completing the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner program through Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.
