As a Family Nurse Practitioner with Summit Health’s Redmond and Sisters team, Amber Loredo has a particular interest in self-care and teenage mental health. “I believe this is something that is not dealt with or spoken about for various reasons and it is vitally important to how we function, handle stressors, our mental health and how we treat others,” says Loredo. She is also an advocate of veteran healthcare. “Those who gave so much deserve proper practice care that is tailored to them.”
Prior to earning her Master of Family Practice Nursing from Maryville University of Saint Louis, Loredo earned her Bachelor of Science from Grand Canyon University after growing up in Culver. Nursing has long been a part of Loredo’s life, as she attributes the care cardiac nurses applied to her grandfather to be driving her desire to provide the same compassion and dedication to her patients. “I truly believe that every patient is more than their illness or wellness. They deserve to be treated as a whole person, including everything that is going on in their life including their opinions and thoughts,” Loredo says.
When not working, she enjoys rafting, hiking, camping, swimming, reading books, and traveling with her husband and two children.
