I am a nurse practitioner (NP) specializing in cardiology. I care for patients in the Cardiac Catheterization lab at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
I became interested in a nursing career after hearing patient care stories that my aunt, a nurse educator, shared with me. Becoming a cardiac cath nurse practitioner was a great fit as I have always had compassion for children living with congenital challenges.
My care philosophy is family-centered, incorporating compassionate care strategies into family dynamics. I encourage families to share information and ask questions that help us care for their children in the best way possible.
When I'm not working, I love to run, cook and spend time with my family.
