Gretchen Rauter, MSN, BSN, APRN-BC, CLCP
Client Relations Manager

Gretchen Rauter has been a Registered Nurse for over 25 years and a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner for over 15 years, with prior board certification as a Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist. Having started her professional career as a pediatric critical care nurse, she returned to school after several years to pursue an advanced nursing degree. She went on to hold a faculty position at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, teaching students in both medical/surgical and mental health care courses and clinical placements. Her more recent positions involved treating mental health conditions across the lifespan, working in outpatient practices and as a consultant to long-term care facilities. Her professional encounters ultimately led her to the field of Life Care Planning, and her current pursuit of certification.

Blending Gretchen’s passion for education and her skill in communication, the role of Client Relations Manager has been a natural career transition. Her desire is for the legal team to understand who we are and what we offer at LCPMD. She will provide you with personal attention and remain in contact as we prepare your clients’ plans and assessments.
