Joanie Amistoso, ARNP
I have always believed that life is about growth and self-development. Every day is an opportunity to grow personally and help others to do the same. When my children were in high school, I decided to follow my passion to care for people. This led to getting my bachelors in nursing. As a former Pediatric nurse, working in the Pediatric ER and Pediatric IV therapy, it didn’t take long for me to realize the diversity within the nursing profession. I knew that my continued interest in being the best version of myself would ultimately result in getting my master’s in nursing science. I am now a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner working in primary care, urgent care, and aesthetic medicine.
My greatest accomplishments were raising 2 wonderful, successful children. In my free time, I love to get outside to enjoy all that the PNW offers, such as paddle boarding, cycling and hiking. I am currently learning to golf. A self-proclaimed “foodie,” I love fine wine and dining. Cooking and entertaining is another passion of mine. The kitchen is definitely one of my “happy places.”
