Get to Know Me

My career began as a registered nurse in the Intensive Care Nursery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. I truly enjoyed my time spent there and discovered the value in the connections that I developed with families. I then became a pediatric nurse practitioner and began working in primary care.  

I received a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from Fordham University in Bronx, NY. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, and a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree, also from Thomas Jefferson University.

Why I Treat Children

I love working with children of all ages and always envisioned a career spent treating them. They brighten my day with their smiles, stories and sometimes silly antics, and it feels so special to be a part of their care as they grow and develop. 

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about considering and incorporating the needs and perspectives of the entire family of my patients so that I may assist in creating the most supportive environment possible.
