About:

Amy Schafer chose to become a nurse practitioner so she could continue working directly with people in a nursing capacity while being able to provide care for patients with a wide variety of medical conditions. She has had a passion for mental health ever since high school when she was working with people with developmental disabilities. Amy earned her Bachelor and Master of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain College of Nursing. Working at Good Samaritan for the past five years, she knew she wanted to stay within the organization as a nurse practitioner. “I absolutely love the family atmosphere of Good Samaritan,” said Amy. “It has been my work-home for the past few years and it was a natural choice to continue working here.” Amy resides in Oblong, Illinois with her niece Kaylyn, four dogs and two horses. In her free time she enjoys attending concerts, riding four wheelers, taking long walks, riding horses, and watching the Marvel and The Fast and the Furious movies.
