My previous experience includes working as an Assistant Nurse Manager and Lead Nurse Practitioner, in the Pediatric Emergency Department, at Advocate Christ Medical Center, on the south side of Chicago. While working there, I recognized the need for better access to pediatric providers in primary care, especially in rural and critical access areas, which has drawn me to KCHC and the Kenosha area.
I know that the early years of one’s life are impressionable and critical for preventing chronic disease. I also understand the importance of recognizing developmental milestones and providing guidance to pediatric patients and their families. Having worked in a hectic pediatric emergency practice for the majority of my career, I look forward to the opportunity to get to know my patients and building a close relationship with them and their families.
My ultimate goal as a pediatric provider is to ensure that each patient receives the highest level of quality, consistent care by assuring that each child and their family are given individual, personalized attention. In addition, it is my goal to create the foundations of long-term, open relationships built on mutual trust and respect with the patient and the people who know them the best. I look forward to this chapter in my life with KCHC and am thankful for the opportunity to provide the highest level of care to the children and families of Kenosha and surrounding areas.
I have always enjoyed working with children, and in my free time, I enjoy volunteering with my licensed therapy dog “Louie”. We enjoy going to local Children’s Hospitals, schools and participating in numerous children’s reading programs.
