As a nurse practitioner, I specialize in caring for patients who have abdominal and thoracic pediatric surgery. I manage children of all ages, before and after surgery, while they are in the hospital. My care approach is to relay complex treatment plans in a way that each family and patient can understand with ease. I received the DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses, which recognize nurses at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center for their excellence in patient care.
Since becoming a registered nurse, I’ve been interested in the fast pace of surgery. It’s gratifying to share in the patient’s journey and assist them in returning to their normal lives. I love working with children and being part of a team that shows kindness and empathy.
I enjoy spending my free time camping and traveling with my family. I also started a nonprofit organization that provides diapers for low-income families.
