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!

When I had called to talk to a nurse in the surgery area I actually got the doctor nurse practitioner and she was very friendly on the phone. I was worried about my son and she made sure she get an appointment for him the next day I came in and she happen to be our doctor, our nurse practitioner at our appointment. So it was nice knowing the person I talked to and she said she knew what I was talking about. She was very friendly very nice. Just real down-to-earth. So it was nice to have somebody that, a nurse that knew what she was doing and treat you with respect when some doctors treat you like

Extremely kind thoughtful, so helpful especially when it's different for us to take care of the feeding tube. I love her so much. She's amazing provider and I would want all mothers to be involved with her. She's kind and calm and make you feel at ease about things.

I received lots of information from several different people regarding my child's condition, treatment and follow-up care. However the instruction for the follow-up care varied from person to person and left me questioning what I needed to do, which required an additional call for clarification. I also was not able to administer the care required at home for my child due to the nature of the wound. I thought it was a lot to ask a Mom with no medical experience to remove packing from a an abscess on a screaming child. DC did allow me to come in for the packing removal and the experience was much less traumatic for my daughter (and myself). Overall the care was fantastic, and the staff top-notch.

She was really friendly and funny and my kid's kind of nervous sometimes around doctors and I think that she was very laid back and made a lot of jokes and reassured him that he was okay to let his restrictions and that he would be fine.
