Emily Taylor, APRN-CNP, is a nurse practitioner who specializes in women’s health. “Women have always been the backbone of a thriving society, yet they tend to put their needs behind meeting the needs of everyone else. I chose to become a women's health nurse practitioner to be a safe place where women can come for girl talk, health prevention and education to take control of their own health,” she said.
After several years of being an elementary education teacher and enduring many hardships, Emily decided to change careers to become a nurse. “I lost my stepsister when I was 13, had an unplanned pregnancy at 20 and lost my best friend at 27. During those challenging times, I witnessed firsthand the compassion and skill that it takes to provide care to people during their most vulnerable times and it inspired me to pursue a career in nursing,” she said.
Now, after years of experience and education, she likes to teach patients about their health by focusing on preventive and holistic care. “I know not everyone looks forward to their pap smear or talking about personal issues. My goal is that you leave feeling comfortable and empowered to take control of your health,” she said.
“My favorite piece of advice to give women is how much we need nature. Being in nature benefits your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing so get outside and soak up some vitamin N (nature),” Emily said.
Emily’s education includes:
• Master of science in nursing (MSN) at the University of South Alabama, 2020
• Bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) at the University of Oklahoma (OU) in Tulsa, 2015
• Bachelor of science in education at Northeastern State University (NSU) in Broken Arrow, 2009
Outside of working at the clinic, Emily enjoys spending time with her wife, three children and their dog. She also likes to go hiking, play sports, take care of her house plants and all things related to American history, especially the American Revolution.
