I completed my Pediatric Nurse Practitioner degree in 2011 at the University of Missouri Columbia. In 2018, I also completed a Family Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, I spent six years as a floor nurse on the oncology/bone marrow transplant unit at Children’s Mercy Hospital. I am married with two children, a son and a daughter, and two dogs. In my free time there is nowhere I would rather be than hanging out on our farm with my family. Life is good!
