As a nurse practitioner, I care for children and adolescents before and after they have a bone marrow transplant. Every child is different and needs to be treated as such, and I use an individualized approach to care.
I’m one of five children and was drawn to my career by a desire to love and care for others, especially children. I love caring for patients who are having a bone marrow transplant. Although it’s hard to see children struggle during the transplant, it also shows the strength and perseverance these children possess.
I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and our young son. We like to swim, go to the zoo and play outside. We also are involved in our church. I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan — I grew up in Wisconsin, so football season is huge at our house!
