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!

They were phenomenal, they cared about us, our son, the whole process from start to finish every nurse, every doctor, everyone in training. Every bit of it was absolutely spectacular. It's everything you want from the children's hospital and it, we will never go anywhere else. She was phenomenal.

Amy was incredible. She explained everything. She was very personable and she really made my daughter feel comfortable in an environment that she really wasn't comfortable being in and I definitely appreciate that.
