My Passion for Healthcare

Pediatric trauma is a challenging but rewarding field. When a child is seriously injured, the entire family is turned upside down. As a Pediatric Trauma Nurse Practitioner, I have the opportunity to guide parents and children through this frightening process with expertise, compassion and kindness. My goal is to make a terrible experience just a bit more tolerable in any way that I can.

My Clinical Focus

I am passionate about research and education on pediatric head trauma. I participate in research and speak on this topic at local, regional and national conferences. My goal is to provide optimal, evidenced-based clinical care to all children, and to educate parents and other providers regarding the prevention and treatment of traumatic brain injury.
