I graduated from Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, now of Mercer University with a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing Science. I worked at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, mainly Egleston but also at Hughes Spalding. Originally, I worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and then for 7 years in the Pediatric Emergency Department. I went on to continue extend my education, graduating from Georgia State University with a Master of Science, specializing in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I am board certified by Pediatric Nursing Certification Board, in Primary Care Pediatrics. I previously worked in a busy suburban pediatric primary care office for near 7 years and also for last several years in a local pediatric emergency room setting, both as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I have been working in pediatrics for near 14 years when the office opened in August 2014.
My education and experience has prepared me to provide comprehensive pediatric well checkups, sick visits, sports physicals, and injury type visits. I am able to evaluate, diagnose and establish a plan of care regarding the diagnosis. I am able to treat, prescribe according to standards of care established by clinical research, recommendations and governing bodies. I am working in a collaborative environment that promotes an ease and expected level of communication between providers, continued education and an environment which is to provide the highest level of loving pediatric care available in our community. We want to establish a baseline foundation of excellence that will be modeled in all environments and healthcare offices. Myself and the physician I will be collaborating with, take this venture to heart and have the same mission values. This, in itself, is a blessing to us.
I am married to the most kind man I have ever met, who is also my best friend and my lifelong companion. Luckily, he is patient too, because he has to deal with me I have beautiful children I adore, each of which I am truly honored to have watched grow, time goes way too quick. As well, this would not have been possible without the loving emotional and financial support of my entire family, not only my husband and children, by my father, my mother, yes… my entire family, each and every single one of you are the reason this is starting. Thank you for your confidence in me and my business partner/physician/best friend in this adventure. Thank you to my church, my dear friends, my community, I love you all. Lastly but always first in my life, thank you Lord for your blessings you shower down on us all.
I feel grateful and joyful to have been led down this path and hope to share this with you all.
