Certification: Certified pediatric nurse practitioner, primary care; Certified Lactation Educator
Practice Philosophy: I strive to provide a holistic, personalized approach when treating patients, allowing the body to heal itself whenever possible. I believe God created each child as a unique and wonderful being and that they should be treated as such. I feel blessed to be in a position where I can help equip parents with knowledge and guidance to raise healthy, happy children. I work hard to support and include families in creating a plan of care suited specifically to their child. I am also passionate about avoiding overuse of antibiotics and helping mothers succeed in their breastfeeding relationship goals.
