bio

Dr. Nicholson is a pediatric endocrinologist at Dayton Children's. She attended Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine to receive her DO. She completed her residency at Good Samaritan/Winthrop Hospital in Long Island, NY, then her pediatric endocrinology fellowship at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York.

Dr. Nicholson is passionate about caring for children with diabetes, and helping kids achieve a healthy weight. She enjoys working at Dayton Children's because it is small enough that every child receives personalized care, but large enough to provide the best, modern treatments.
