Amber joined the practice at Avista Women's Care as a Certified Nurse Midwife in 2015. She is passionate about patient-centered, low-intervention care that partners with women throughout their lifespan.
She completed her master's degree in nursing at Frontier Nursing University, focusing her clinical experience in the community hospital and birth center settings. Amber is inspired by the strength of the women she works with and truly believes that the health of the world begins with the mother. She completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice at Duke University with a focus on nursing education, quality improvement and healthcare policy. Her doctoral work promoted evidence-based perinatal mood and anxiety disorder screening and treatment.
Amber is originally from Ohio but happily lives in beautiful Colorado with her husband, two kids and Goldendoodle. She enjoys most of her free time being active and outdoors: yoga, hiking, traveling, camping and exploring.
