Amber Dortch is a board-certified nurse practitioner. She graduated from Duke University in 2021 as a Family Nurse Practitioner, after spending 17 years at the bedside as a Registered Nurse. Amber spent 10 years in the emergency department, and was underwhelmed by the mental health care that she saw being provided. It was then that she realized mental health was an area where she could offer help, and hope. Amber believes the first priority in life is to always find peace because when you find peace, you find what is important, and then everything balances out. She finds peace in her garden, preserving foods, spending time with her family, and traveling the world.
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. -Joseph Campbell
