get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

as an RN I cared for surgical patients on 3 East for 8 years. As I transition to my role as an APRN, I am ready for the challenge of caring for these patient’s in a different scope of practice and expand my knowledge, clinical skills and critical thinking skills. I want to make a difference in what is often a difficult time for these patients and families.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

I love working with kids! They make each day happier and brighter. I love the relationships and bonds I have developed and will hopefully continue to develop with the patients and families that I care for.

Dayton Children's is special because...

it allows me to continue my passion and care for kids and their families while also being a fun place to work!

My son loves Dr. Amy! She was running a little behind with her in patients needing her attention and the nurse brought in coloring books to help pass the time. Would highly recommend everyone at Children's.

Ms. Amy is an absolute gem. She is the only person in the hospital my special needs son will let touch his g tube. I cannot say enough about her excellent bedside manner, her kind and genuine personality puts my son at ease. She has the most loving touch. Amy has his complete trust even though sometimes he is scared and apprehensive. She always explains every procedure in great detail as well as each step she is taking and what comes next as she goes throughout our visits in the specialty clinic. Both he & I know exactly what to expect. Never any surprises. Ms. Amy has the patience of a saint and has never hurried my son or me along in the time we have been seeing her although I know she must have many other pts waiting. Amy always makes sure we have the supplies we need, the knowledge of how and when to use them before we leave. Ms. Amy is my angel. I know she is never more than a phone call way. 4th Floor Hemo/Oncology Mom
