    What I Do
    I strive to provide patient and family-centered care, working as a team to support my patients through their health journey. It’s important to me that I create a safe and caring environment for my patients to feel seen and heard.

    My clinical interests include pediatric primary care and acute care.

    Why I Love My Work
    What I enjoy most about my job is building a connection with my patients and their families, while providing support and guidance through illness and wellness.

    Getting to Know Me
    I knew I wanted to be a nurse since the age of 4 because several of my family members, including my dad, were nurses. I have had a passion for caring for kids from a young age so I knew pediatrics would be the specialty for me. Once I started working as a nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), I wanted to be able to provide for my own patients. A new drive to become a nurse practitioner was born. The team of pediatricians and nurses at CentraCare have such a great working relationship and put their patient’s needs first and I am excited to be part of that.

    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, enjoying the beautiful weather and its seasons with my kids. During the summers we spend a lot of time in our camper in Walker, Minnesota and we travel anywhere warm during the winter months. I also enjoy finding a good book to dive into when I’m not chasing my two boys around.
