I was born and raised in St. Louis and am a proud Cardinals fan. I graduated from St. Louis University with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2009 and began working as a registered nurse in the Emergency Department at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. My husband, Leonard, and I met while working at Children’s Hospital in 2011. He was an EMT in the Emergency Department at the time. We married in 2014 and welcomed his two children, Sophia and Gabriel, into our home.
As time went on, we both chose to pursue career advancements. We had quite an exciting year in 2016. Leonard became a Park Ranger for St. Louis County, allowing him to enjoy all of the perks of working outdoors. In March of 2016, we welcomed our daughter, Abigail, into our lives. Also, in December of 2016, I graduated from St. Louis University with my Master of Science in Nursing, specializing as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner of Primary Care. I worked as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in a primary care office for one year before joining Ideal Pediatrics in February 2018. It has been my dream to have the opportunity to be a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in an environment where I can not only help educate patients and families, but also learn and grow as a provider. I very much look forward to caring for the children at Ideal Pediatrics.
