  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Newborn Intensive Care Unit



As an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), I strive to treat every patient and family with love, respect and care. Genuinely listening to the family is an important tool to care for our infants. Caring for a patient is a team effort and parents are a large asset to our care team. Their insights and instincts matter. I value authenticity and treat every child as if they were my own.

I was inspired to pursue nursing at a young age by a mentor. I have always had a passion for pediatrics and took my first job as a registered nurse (RN) in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). I began my pursuit of becoming an APRN because I realized that I wanted to learn more so that I could better care for patients and families.

Children are resilient and incredibly strong. Neonates are some of the toughest, most beautiful human beings I have ever had the pleasure of caring for. Caring for premature infants and neonates has taught me so much, not only as a clinician, but also as a human being. I believe there is so much value that can be gained by caring for infants.

In my free time, I enjoy fitness and being outdoors, as well as spending time with my son and my husband. I enjoy reading and writing. I also very much enjoy teaching others about neonates.
