A little about me.....

I have been a pediatric nurse for over 10 years and I would not change that for the world. Nursing has always held a special place in my heart. I love working with children and their families, helping them reach optimal health while making their experience as positive as possible. As my career continued, I wanted to learn more about these amazing little humans which directed me to the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program. With my additional education, knowledge and experience, I am able to assess, diagnose, medically manage your child’s health while collaborating, consulting and referring when needed. As a NP, I care for families using a holistic family centred care approach to ensure your family receives the best care possible.
