About

Biography

During nursing school, I spent time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and knew I wanted to focus on newborn babies. As a neonatal nurse practitioner, I love to involve families in their child’s care. I strive to provide information that empowers families to advocate for their children.

At Cincinnati Children’s we provide high-level neonatal care. Our evidence-based practices assure children achieve the best outcomes. I specialize in caring for children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia. I also serve on the NICU leadership team as an advanced practice provider program lead.

I’m honored to work at a hospital that is consistently ranked among the Top 10 in the nation for neonatal care.

When I’m not at work, I’m learning to play golf. I also love to travel.
