Meet Samantha Johnsen, RN, FNP-C

Nurse Practitioner

Photo of SamanthaI decided to specialize in obstetrics after seeing my transition from woman to mother.

Every pregnancy experience is different, requiring personalized care and management. So many rapid changes happen physically, mentally, and emotionally that they can get easily overlooked.

As a lifelong diabetic and mother of three, I have intimate, first-hand knowledge of the physical, emotional, and mental toll a high risk pregnancy can take. I work alongside my patients to ensure they receive the best holistic care, treatment, and guidance.

Samantha Johnsen is a board-certified Nurse Practitioner with more than ten years of advanced clinical training in women’s health. She’s highly trained and experienced in diabetes care and education.

Samantha understands that managing diabetes and gestational diabetes is much more than just maintaining a low-sugar diet. She works hard to create individualized care plans based on each patient’s needs. She’s known for having excellent bedside manner, active listening skills, and a positive, can-do attitude.

I want my patients to know they can accomplish big goals throughout their pregnancy and upon delivery of their baby—and I’m here to help them every step of the way.

In her free time, Samantha enjoys creating healthy, diabetic-friendly meal plans, camping, hiking, spending time outdoors, and traveling with her husband, kids, and dogs.

She’s also very involved in her children’s sporting activities and spends most of her weekends cheering them on from the sidelines.
