BethAnn Nevius
BethAnn Nevius
APRN & CEO

BethAnn has over a decade experience in the medical field. She has 7 years experience in the ICU where she originally began her journey. Here she developed her love for people, and the medical field. She obtained her degree from University of Louisville where she specialized in Adult-Gerontology. She has experience in traveling nursing and treating home-bound patients in primary care. She is well versed in pain management, along with treating substance abuse & related issues. BethAnn is passionate about helping others and is dedicated to help those who are suffering. From someone who suffered from anorexia and depression in her early teens—and watched her Grandfather with metastatic cancer get little relief from Opiate pain medication- she understands the need in wanting to be well and to find relief. It’s our mission to help find what works best for you.

When not at work, BethAnn enjoys spending time with her family, relaxing on the farm with her animals, and her husband (Co-owner of Serenity Health). They have 5 dogs, three cats, and three horses. BethAnn and Kit both have big hearts for people, and animals!

"I have the best job in the World—because I get to see people who have struggled for years get better—and there is no greater reward than this; a true blessing. I love my patients and they are, and always will be my top priority."

Juan (Kit) Afable
ANESTHESIA PROVIDER

Kit started his passion for helping people when he began his studies for the priesthood. He studied for the Archdiocese of Louisville in Conception Seminary College where he earned his Undergraduate Degree in Philosophy, shortly after that he decided to pursue his passion for helping people through the field of Nursing. Kit earned his Bachelors Degree in Nursing at Spalding University in Louisville KY. After working in the Intensive Care setting for 3 years, he decided to specialize in the field of anesthesia. Kit earned his Graduated Degree at Texas Wesleyan University. After finishing his master degree program he started practicing at Norton Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Kit soon decided to move and join the University of Kentucky, where he still presently provides Anesthesia. When he is not working at Serenity Health or UK, he enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife BethAnn and co-owner of Serenity Health, along with his many fur babies on their family farm. Both Kit and BethAnn enjoy traveling, and exploring new adventures.

"I'm very passionate about what we do here at Serenity Health. Unfortunately, I lost a very dear cousin of mine, Angela due to depression. When I was younger, I was unable to do anything to help her, but now that I can, and I want to help those who are in the same situation as she once was. No one should have to fight the battle of depression alone or feel as it is a hopeless cause. I want to help families, and patients suffering, and it is my hope that no other family has to endure the pain that suicide leaves behind."
