Born and raised in Milwaukie, Oregon, and former patient of Dr. Rupa Shah, Amanda Ankeny has been a part of Clackamas & Oregon Pediatrics since birth. From an early age she knew that she wanted to work with kids and healthcare. She graduated from George Fox University with a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular biology, with a minor in Sociology, before moving to North Carolina to attend Duke University’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program.
Upon moving back to Oregon she worked as a Registered Nurse at Providence Center for Medically Fragile Children. Her Master of Science in Nursing was completed through Duke University School of Nursing, with her final clinical rotation completed with Dr. Rupa Shah at Clackamas Pediatric Clinic.
In her spare time Amanda enjoys: spending time with friends and family; reading; crafting; and organizing kids events at her church.
Amanda has a special love for taking care of children and families who experience disability and chronic illness. The strength, courage and ability that these kiddos show is one of her favorite things to acknowledge when meeting these families. She likes to meet kids where they are at and approach their care from there.
“My goal is work every day by building relationships with children and their families in order to support each child’s unique, individual needs.”
