  • Nurse Practitioner, Newborn Intensive Care Unit



I provide bedside care to critically ill infants in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cincinnati Children's. My goals are to provide family-centered care, make the family feel a part of the team and value their input.

Ever since I was a young girl, I wanted to be a member of the Cincinnati Children's team. In college, I was a volunteer at the hospital and fell in love with the institution and the children.

We are a very compassionate group of providers who enjoy taking care of some of the tiniest patients. In most cases, parents know their children better than the providers and they can provide valuable input that helps us deliver the best care possible.

My family is my main focus outside of work. I co-lead my daughter’s girl scout troop and love attending my son’s soccer games as his number one fan.
