Originally from the Western Suburbs of Chicago, I received both my BSN and MSN from Loyola University Chicago. I worked inpatient Pediatrics and Pediatric ICU at Loyola Medical Center and then at Hinsdale Hospital while completing my Master's at Loyola in the Family Nurse Practitioner program.
Loyola provided me an excellent education, but I believe my bedside experience helped me tremendously in honing my clinical skills and knowledge. Prior to joining LaGrange Pediatrics, I worked as a Nurse Practitioner at a Take Care Clinic and La Rabida/University of Chicago in Pediatric Hematology.
I enjoy getting to know patients and families. Parents and family are a very knowledgeable and valuable resource when it comes knowing their children and their well being. My goal with both patients and parents is to develop trusting relationships and address all questions and concerns.
I work with a great team and never hesitate to ask my collaborative physicians for their insight. Pediatric Primary Care is a very fun and fulfilling place to be. I feel very fortunate to be able to say, I love what I do!
