I joined Pediatric Associates in 2007 after working nearly 10 years at a pediatric practice in Greeley, Colorado. I attended Clemson University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I received a Masters Degree in Primary Health Care of Infants, Children, and Adolescents from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

I have been a PNP since 1998 and am certified through the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board. Prior to becoming a PNP, I worked as a RN in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and pediatric ICU for many years in Georgia, Kentucky, and The Children’s Hospital in Denver.

My husband, David, and I have four children in our blended family. I enjoy family activities, including sports, working out, reading, cooking, running with my dog, and being outdoors.

My focus is to promote the health of children through my practice as an advocate, educator, resource, and active listener. I enjoy helping parents and their children to be the best they can be. As a mom, I understand children’s health in the context of both the child and parent. I hope to give parents and their children the knowledge and support needed to be happy and healthy.
