Amy Johnson, AnP
I have lived in Wasilla for 25 years and I started my career in healthcare as a nurse’s aide at the Pioneer Home in Palmer. In 2002 I became a medical assistant and worked in Wasilla and Willow. I’ve always had a love for women’s health and childbirth and I eventually met a wonderful midwife who took me under her wing and agreed to apprentice me as a direct-entry midwife. I worked with her for 2 years before deciding I had so much more to learn and I went back to nursing school. Midway through nursing school I fulfilled a life-long dream and enlisted in the Alaska Army National Guard and in 2010 I transferred over to the Alaska Air National Guard. I was enlisted as a UH-60 helicopter crew chief until I direct commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the 176th Medical Group Nurse Corp in 2011. As a nurse I have worked in internal medicine, outpatient surgery, family health, forensic nursing and with the Department of Corrections. In 2012 I started my Master’s Degree through Frontier Nursing University as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and became board certified in 2014.
I am married and have a wonderful husband. I have two daughters that are now in Heaven. I live for fishing and hunting season. I love taking trips up north on the Haul Road bow hunting for caribou and sitting for hours with a fishing pole in hand.
I love helping people and I want to care for my patients with compassion, competence and humility and really listen to their concerns. I believe people should be given unbiased information about their healthcare options and be supported in those decisions.
