Amie Farris, APRN-CNP, has been a health care professional in the Tulsa area since 2013. Before joining Utica Park Clinic, she worked with pediatric patients at Saint Francis. It was here she discovered a passion for palliative care. “I learned helping children with chronic illnesses, life altering injuries and terminal diseases can be emotionally taxing, but also very rewarding,” she says.
Palliative care allows Amie to assist patients and their families to work toward maximizing their quality of life by creating a specialized plan. “It’s a privilege to empower people to make treatment decisions that are in line with their personal goals, hopes and values,” she says.
Amie brings an optimistic approach to work amidst the often challenging nature of her field. “It is an honor to be allowed into people’s lives, often during trying times,” she says. “I embrace the opportunity to make a positive impact every day.”
Amie graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing in 2013. She earned her Master of Science degree in nursing from the University of Oklahoma in 2018. Amie is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, the Association of Oklahoma Nurse Practitioners and the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society.
Amie’s personal interests include traveling, volunteering, cooking and photography.
