Amanda Loates is a three-time alumni from the University of Calgary receiving her BA in Psychology (‘04), her Bachelor of Nursing (‘10) and most recently Masters of Education (‘23). Amanda has worked as a nurse in the community for over 13 years in roles supporting people’s mental health and addiction Her passion has been supporting marginalized populations including working five year as the Street Outreach and Stabilization Nurse. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the NP Led Wellness and Mental Health Clinic in her role as coach, including assessment, trauma informed approaches, group development and implementation, and several therapeutic modalities that inform the coaching support she offers. The first two years of her Masters program focused on Niitsitapii (Indigenous) epistemological and ontological perspective, reflecting Poo’miikapii (Indigenous approaches to wellness) and Niitsitapiisinni (Indigenous art, politics, and history) and she gratefully offers these experiences to support clients of the clinic. She happily joined the team in September of 2023 and will be applying her skills to the strengthening and development of nursing students in a model that promotes nurses helping nurses.
