Personal Statement

I became a pediatric nurse practitioner due to its focus on pediatric medicine, patient education, and patient advocacy. Early in my career, I found passion in the intricate field of pediatric endocrinology. As most of the conditions I treat are chronic in nature, I enjoy building strong relationships with patients and their families throughout childhood and adolescence. I believe that keeping an open, honest line of communication is essential to provide the best care possible for my patients.
