About Me


As a family nurse practitioner, I specialize in caring for children with feeding, digestive and other gastroenterological conditions. I also am an international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). This expertise helps me treat feeding difficulties as well as gastrointestinal issues.

Our family-centered care approach makes the family a full partner in their child’s treatment decisions. It lets the family provide input and insight into the care of their child. I serve as a member of the pediatric gastroenterology team, interdisciplinary feeding team and Aerodigestive/Esophageal Center care team. By working together, we provide optimal care for each child.

My passion is caring for children and their families. Every day I feel honored to be part of their healthcare team. After many years as a staff nurse, I pursued an advanced practice degree to become a family nurse practitioner.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, gardening and spending time with my family.
