I knew when I was young that I wanted to work as a nurse. My mom works in surgery, and when she talked about her job, I was fascinated! I always knew working with children would be rewarding and felt a call early in my career to work at Cincinnati Children's.
I am a family nurse practitioner who specializes in plastic and craniofacial surgery. I believe every patient and family has a story to tell, and as a provider, my job is to learn from them and use their input to guide the care.
Plastic and craniofacial surgery patients are such an amazing population! Their treatment course allows their providers to see them for many years. We watch the kids grow from infants to adults, which is exciting.
In my free time, I am busy running my kids around to sporting events and school activities. I enjoy crafting and volunteering at my kids’ school.
