I’ve been a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner since 2018. I received my undergraduate degree from Saint Louis University and my graduate degree from Maryville University.
My medical background is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Transplant Surgery, and Pediatric Primary Care. I was working at Washington University-St. Louis Children’s before coming to Community Choice Pediatrics in 2022.
I love and enjoy everything about working in pediatrics. From helping children feel better to giving parents the information, they need to make an informed decision on their child’s health.
I lost my son, Henry, in 2013. He inspired me to return to graduate school and become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Experiencing such a significant loss gave me a deep understanding of how truly precious life is. I am beyond blessed and thankful to God for having such an amazing family and work family.
Outside of work, I love being with my family and my puppy. I enjoy traveling, baking, and hiking. The craziest thing I have done is probably a tie between skydiving and scuba diving! Both were amazing experiences! Just because something is scary doesn’t mean it isn’t worth doing!
