Why did you choose to practice pediatrics?
I have known since I was young that I wanted to be a nurse because I grew up around amazing women in my family that were nurses. It was while volunteering with various organizations that help children in need in high school that I realized my passion was in pediatrics. The resiliency of children and their ability to be positive despite illness or hardship is what made me decide to peruse a career in pediatric healthcare.
What is most rewarding about your work?
Caring for sick or injured children in our community and forming relationships with families. Knowing that parents trust the Urgent Care for Children team to take care of their children when they have an urgent need reassures me daily that we are making a difference.
When working with your patients and their families, what is your approach?
I am always sure to be an active listener and take the time to address any concerns the patients or families may have and connect with my patients. I want my patients and families to feel comfortable having an open & honest discussion with me.
How do you stay healthy and happy?
I enjoy exercising and spending time with my friends & family during my time away from work. The beach is my happy place & you can find me there anytime I need a mental break.
