As a pediatric nurse practitioner, I treat children and adolescents in the Pulmonary Transitional Care Center (TCC). We care for patients who are reliant on tracheostomies, invasive ventilation and noninvasive ventilation.
In the Pulmonary TCC, we strive to provide patient- and family-centered care to patients with medically complex conditions. I feel children deserve the best possible care, and I attempt to provide comprehensive care to each child as if they were family.
In my free time, I love to take my dog Mia to the trails to explore. I also enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and reading for fun.
