Amanda Miller, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
Amanda grew up in Kansas City, and moved to Fort Worth, Texas to attend Texas Christian University where she graduated with Bachelor degrees in Nursing and Spanish.
Her interest in dermatology started from a very young age. Her grandmother worked as a dermatology nurse for over 25 years. Amanda dreamed of following in her grandmother's footsteps. As a third grader, Amanda's fascination with skin health became evident to her classmates and teacher. She presented to her class on Squamous Cell Carcinoma when tasked with an assignment to present on any health topic.
Upon graduating from TCU, Amanda worked as a surgery nurse in the north Texas area. She then spent the next five years working as a travel nurse in pediatric hospitals in northern and Southern California and in New York City. Her love for children grew with each new assignment as she was introduced to patients from all walks of life. While working full-time, Amanda completed her Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Texas at Arlington. She received formal dermatology training while in school, and continued to work after graduation as a nurse practitioner in two local dermatology offices.
Today, Amanda is an active member of the SDPA (Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants), the Tarrant County Nurse Practitioner Society, and she regularly attends dermatology conferences and meetings. She recently attended the American Dermoscopy Conference, where she received advanced training in the diagnosis and management of pigmented lesions.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys traveling, reading, volunteering with the Fort Worth Junior League, and fishing.
Amanda works in the Cook Children's dermatology clinic. She enjoys educating patients and families on various skin conditions, and is passionate about helping each and every patient feel more confident in their skin every day.
