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!

Our child was seen right away and ahead of schedule because we arrived early. Amy was very friendly and very gentle with our child's wound. She felt listened to and felt she was in good hands.

I love Dayton Children's Hospital! My daughter loves going there! She forgets that she is even at a hospital when we are there. They are very good to us, the parents, as well. Anything we may need, they make sure we have!

Amy K is AMAZING!!! She listens and takes great care of my nonverbal daughter. She has brought in a colleague, Jess, to help in a new situation as Jess had more experience. We received dynamic duo care and my daughter is rapidly healing. Amy has taken great care of our family being "lead" on helping us navigate surgery scheduling with 2 different depts We would be adrift without her knowledge and professionalism... and amazing humor (for mom's sake)
