Aimee Kehres, APRN-CNS, specializes in medical oncology (cancer care) and has been in health care since 2008. Ms. Kehres also provides emotional support. “Learning you have cancer is extremely overwhelming and scary,” she said. “I will take the time to educate you and your support systems so you have the information you need to make decisions about your care.”
Ms. Kehres chose to focus her career on oncology because of personal experiences. “Several of my family members have had cancer or have a genetic susceptibility to cancer,” she said. “Watching my mom go through chemotherapy for breast cancer when I was a teenager really left an impact on me. I was in constant awe of the care she received from her nurses and doctors.”
Ms. Kehres encourages her patients to stay proactive. “Know your risk factors and make informed choices about your health,” she said. “It is so important to get recommended cancer screenings. Many cancers are completely treatable if caught early.”
Ms. Kehres received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Albion College in Albion, Michigan in 2002. She received an associate degree in nursing from Jackson College in Jackson, Michigan in 2008. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2016. She earned a Master of Science degree in nursing from The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City in 2020. Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic, Ms. Kehres worked at Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute in Tulsa.
When she is away from the office, Ms. Kehres enjoys spending time with her husband and twin daughters, hiking, camping and playing board games.
