My nurse practitioner role is a call to serve children and families during times of illness, which is an extraordinary privilege. My philosophy is simple, do everything I can to give excellent care to my patients. I am committed to making a positive impact through my decisions and interactions with families. Good outcomes don’t happen by chance. Thorough gathering and synthesis of patient data into accurate and targetable problems is the first step and key to successful treatment. I treasure being a nurse practitioner, I am able to participate in restoring children to health and supporting families through difficult times.
