Board Certified ARNP

In 1997 I began working at Children’s Hospital in Seattle as a Registered Nurse.  I knew instantly that working with children was my calling.  When I applied for the Graduate program in nursing at the University of Washington I chose the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program because the focus was entirely pediatrics.  Each of my 8 clinical rotations were done in primary care clinics around Seattle.  In addition to primary care, I worked as an RN at Seattle Children’s Hospital in the areas of Oncology, Medical and Surgical, and the Emergency Department.  I also did volunteer medical work with homeless youth in Seattle.

I began working as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in 2002 at the Children’s Clinic in Portland, Oregon.  I worked there for 4 years and received excellent mentor-ship with a large group of physicians. Since moving to Spokane in 2006, I have worked in various primary care settings.  

My husband and I moved to Spokane in 2006.  We have three children, a cat, a dog and a beehive.  We spend a good amount of time involved in soccer, along with school and church activities.  I enjoy biking, gardening, and reading.

I strive to provide excellent health care guidance and treatment to children. I truly love every age and stage of development!  Helping parents navigate their child’s wellness through guidance and education is my paramount goal.  I am certified through the Pediatric Nursing Board where I receive continuing education for up-to-date treatment guidelines and recommendations. I look forward to meeting you and your child/children.
