Amanda Parks is a family nurse practitioner at Immediate Care.
She was born in Casper and comes from a line of medical professionals. Her grandfather was a family medicine physician in Denver, and her mom was an registered nurse who worked at Wyoming Medical Center for 40 years.
"I guess you can say it's in my blood," she said. "I have a passion for helping others in their moment of need, and I want to help others live their best lives."
She earned her nursing degree from Casper College in 2002 and was an ER nurse at Wyoming Medical Center for 13 years. She earned her master’s degree in nursing from Walden University. She then worked with internal medicine specialists Drs. Cory and Renee Stirling for five years.
"When the COVID 19 pandemic hit, there was a piece of me aching to be involved. I have a passion for acute care, and there is always an ER nurse in me. Acute care allows me to help someone in their immediate time of need," she said. "It has been heartwarming to see the amazing team at WMC pull together and provide care to our community in its greatest time of need."
Parks is married and has three children.
