I always knew I wanted to be either a pediatrician or pediatric nurse, and I decided to pursue a nursing career. Once I started working at Cincinnati Children’s as a registered nurse (RN), I saw the role of nurse practitioners. I earned my Master of Science Degree in Nursing (MSN) and became certified as an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN).
As an APRN, I diagnose, interpret test results and provide direct patient care. I also independently prescribe appropriate medication and refer to other specialists, if necessary.
In my practice, I always put the patients first. I care for surgical inpatients at Cincinnati Children’s Liberty Campus, and I put myself in their place, or their parents’ place, and see what they want and need from my care. We truly want the best for our patients and their families.
During my free time, I love to shop, hang out by the pool and spend time with my family. I also like to do photography on the side.
