Hi there! I’m Amanda, an Ivy-league educated nurse practitioner, twin mom, and freelance writer. Since graduating from Yale School of Nursing in 2011 I’ve been navigating my way through the professional world of medicine, figuring out how to achieve balance and spend my time making the biggest impact.
Why Work With Me?
I’m not a former medical pro who now works behind a screen–I live and breathe healthcare every day!
I currently work part-time as an emergency medicine nurse practitioner in a Level I trauma center. I also work as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE).
Additionally, I am one of the founders and prior co-directors of an NP/PA post-graduate training program in Emergency Medicine.
It is a core value of mine that the number one place to get credible, relatable medical knowledge is through hands-on patient care, so you won’t see me hanging up my scrubs and white coat any time soon!
I am a married mother of toddler twin girls, and becoming their mother is certainly my greatest achievement (sorry, Yale!).
Everything I do is to create a better life for my children, because I strongly believe that one of the most impactful ways to change the world is to love your family and leave a legacy of compassionate, socially aware, and truly happy earth-dwellers.
Okay, I just got pretty deep there for a moment. But you get it, right?
Oh, and the following cliches apply to me: loves long walks on the beach, starts each day with a hot cup of coffee, enjoys spontaneous dance parties.
