Meet the Eleanor Health Lowell, MA Clinical Team!
June 22, 2022
My name is Brookeita Payne and I’ve joined Eleanor Health as the Clinic Operations Manager in Lowell, MA. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have had the pleasure of working in the field of Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder for several years. It has been a privilege to work in various clinical settings and in various roles from case management to clinician to clinical supervisor. Over the years I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and collaborated with many community organizations. I’m excited to be a part of a team providing whole-person care and meeting our community members where they are at. If there is one thing I have learned throughout my years of experience, it is that tough times don’t last, tough people do! I take pride in being able to participate in the recovery journey of our community members and will do my part to provide the best service for our members and the Eleanor Health team. When I am not serving our community, my time and attention are best spent focusing on my daughter and helping her grow as a young entrepreneur.

Misty Hinkle, APRN, PMHNP-BC
Hello, my name is Misty Hinkle, APRN, PMHNP-BC and I am joining the Lowell, MA location as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, working through the telehealth platform. While working in the hospital, as a Registered Nurse and continuing my education, I began to look around and realized those with Mental Health Disorders and Substance Use Disorders were treated differently than those with Medical Disorders and I found that unacceptable and began to develop compassion, empathy, understanding, and a true passion for that population. When providing care for others, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and finding mom and pop places to eat. I am excited to join the Eleanor team and promote their vision of holistic and compassionate care for those with Substance Use Disorders.
