  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Newborn Intensive Care Unit



Since a young age, I’ve always sensed that medicine was a calling for me. I love helping others, and I was drawn to pediatrics because kids are fun to work with!

I started as a patient-care assistant during nursing school at Cincinnati Children’s, and I absolutely loved working with children. Since then, I have never looked back. Being able to give infants a voice and helping families navigate the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) world is now my happy place.

As a neonatal nurse practitioner, I try to approach patient care in a family-centered manner. Since neonates cannot speak for themselves, it is important to listen to the families who know their babies very well. Our staff understands how stressful it can be to have your child in the NICU, and we encourage parents and other caregivers to ask questions and advocated for their infant.

I love spending my free time being with my family and friends and enjoying weekends at the lake.
