Amber Johnson, DNP, CNM

Quality Improvement Coach

“I am proud to support CPCQC because our country’s maternal mortality rate is the highest of any developed nation in the world. This deserves our immediate attention. Equipping Colorado’s frontline perinatal healthcare providers with quality improvement support and skills will save lives.” 

Amber believes that the health of the world begins with high-quality and equitable reproductive healthcare. She works as a Certified Nurse Midwife, providing comprehensive reproductive health care in her community. In addition to her clinical role, she has served as a midwifery educator in the clinical, classroom and simulation settings. As a global health visiting professor, she supported the launch of the first graduate-level midwifery program in Northern Uganda

Amber’s doctoral work was focused on bridging the gap between mental health and perinatal care through quality improvement. She earned a Master of Science in Nursing from Frontier Nursing University and a Doctor of Nursing Practice from Duke University.

As a quality improvement coach at CPCQC, she supports activities related to evidence-based, data-driven, continuous quality improvement projects in maternal and infant health across the state.
