Caring for children has always been a big part of my life, even from a young age. When I started my medical career as a Registered Nurse in 2008, there was no question that my heart was in Pediatrics. After completing my Bachelor of Science in nursing at the University of South Alabama, I worked in general pediatrics and in the pediatric intensive care unit at USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Mobile, Alabama for 7 years. In 2015 I moved to Atlanta to work in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) at Egleston. I’ve remained at CHOA since, working at both the Egleston and Scottish Rite campuses, and have gained further experience in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Technology Dependent Intensive Care Unit.
In 2018 I went back to school to obtain a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and earned a license to practice as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. During this time, I gained experience in Primary Care, Pulmonology, Orthopedics, Infectious Disease, and Neurosurgery.
In my years of caring for the medical needs of children and growing relationships with them
and their families, I’ve come to understand and admire the resilience and strength of children and have come to respect and appreciate the knowledge of their caregivers. This has made me passionate about, not only using the most up to date medical resources, but also partnering with parents to develop a plan of care that is specific to what a child needs in order to promote wellness and prevent and treat illness.
In my free time I love being involved in my church, being in and around water, hiking, snuggling with my dog (Taylor) and cat (Katie), going to the beach, cooking, baking, traveling, reading, exercising, and drinking coffee.
I’m so looking forward to coming alongside your family to help nurture strong, happy, and healthy children.
