Ivy Opoku-Mensah, FNP-BC

Ivy Opoku-Mensah, FNP-C comes to Manet after working with TeamHealth in Dedham, MA and at the Warwick Pain Center in Warwick, RI. Her clinical interests include women’s health and pain management.

Ivy holds both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Nursing from Regis College. She also has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Birmingham in Birmingham, United Kingdom, as well as Bachelor's and Master's degrees in engineering and management.

She decided to become a nurse practitioner after her husband’s job in the Army brought her to the United States from England, where she grew up. She took a job at Hebrew Senior Life in Dedham, MA and enjoyed both the health care environment and her interaction with the nurses and nurse practitioners with whom she worked. The nurse practitioners who cared for her when she was pregnant with her children further sparked her interest, particularly in women’s health. “I loved the way they could spend time with me,” she says. “Now I love what I do.”

She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the Massachusetts Coalition of Nurse Practitioners. She speaks two Ghanaian languages, Ga and Twi.
