Amy Milroy is a double board-certified psychiatric and family nurse practitioner. Upon earning her BSN she started her career as a registered nurse in 2012. After working in healthcare for several years she felt called to advocate more directly for her patients by becoming a provider. She went to Rush University to become a family nurse practitioner, and in 2018 she completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. In 2021 she completed the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner program at Johns Hopkins University. During her career she has cared for patients in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings including psychiatry, urgent care, and primary care. She is also a nursing professor, as well as a volunteer provider of free healthcare in the U.S. and abroad. Amy is passionate about putting health and wellness within reach for all, and she knows mental and physical health are inextricably linked. She believes you are capable of feeling joy and balance in your life, and she is dedicated to helping you discover that. In her free time, you can find her playing with animals (especially her adorable dog), boogying to music, reading, watching a movie, or traveling to exciting new places.
Keep walking, though there’s no place to get to.
Don’t try to see through the distances. That’s not for human beings.
Move within, but don’t move the way fear makes you move.
Let the beauty we love be what we do. -
