Shana Martinez, ARNP
Hi, my name is Shana, I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) who is passionate about meeting people where they are in their healthcare journey. I am devoted to establishing a wholesome patient-provider relationship and believe each patient should have the knowledge and tests needed to make informed decisions about their healthcare at an affordable price.
Throughout my healthcare journey I have worked in various settings since the age of sixteen. Since that time I have had the opportunity to contribute to the care and wellbeing of many individuals in various settings and in different roles from management to combat. I proudly served our country in the United States Army as a Combat Medic overseas in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
After years of nursing I realized I wanted to reach patients at a different level. My desire is to provide exceptional and personalized care and that is what prompted me to obtained my Masters in Nursing and became board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner. My desire is to provide healthcare to those individuals who are experiencing barriers to care. Whether your barrier is a high deductible insurance plan, a language barrier, or no insurance coverage at all, I want to meet and partner with you where you are in your healthcare journey and needs.
I am active member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, as well as the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, and the American Nurses Association. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, biking, jogging, and spending time adventuring with my family. I am excited to be a part of the Ankeny community and look forward to being a partner in your healthcare journey. Let's work together and towards a healthier you!
