About Me

Biography

As a pediatric nurse practitioner, I specialize in emergency medicine — working in the emergency department and urgent care at Cincinnati Children's. My care philosophy focuses not only on treatment, but also on prevention. I value time spent with families providing exceptional care and education.

My career began in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), taking care of the littlest ones, and evolved into taking care of children across the age spectrum. I look forward to my work because of the positive interactions I have with patients and families.

I spend additional time participating in quality improvement projects, and I helped facilitate the start of our CincyKids telehealth offering.

In my spare time, I'm exercising. You can find me anywhere from Pilates class to the Peloton bike. If I'm not exercising, I'm cooking. My husband claims he has never had the same meal twice! We live in northern Kentucky with our two dogs, Chloe and Jax, who are treat-motivated and expert squirrel chasers.
