From Christine Dyke
Samantha Ainsworth Wright:
Sam began her career at Dartmouth as a nurse 7 years ago in the Nursing Residency Program, and her first position was working on the Medical Specialties Unit. From there, she transferred to the MICU for the following 5 years. While in that setting, she appreciated working with patients who had complex diagnosis, knowing that the work she did had a profound impact on people. Working in healthcare through the height of COVID was a challenge, but it further reinforced her passion for working in health care and caring for patients who need it most.
After getting an advanced degree in primary care at Boston College, she continued her education at Georgetown University, where she completed a post graduate certification in acute care. She is excited to have this opportunity to push her scope of practice to the next level and to develop her skills as a healthcare professional through the Critical Care APP Residency at Dartmouth Health, where her journey began.
Ellie grew up in Vermont and completed her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. After completing her undergrad degree she worked as an EMT, medical scribe and medical assistant. She moved to Tacoma Washington to complete PA school at the University of Washington. She has newly returned back to the Northeast to complete a Critical Care APP fellowship and is enjoying the opportunity to learn from incredible providers and expand her knowledge and procedural skills. In her personal time she enjoys running, hiking, and skiing with her dog Lola.
