Pediatric Nursing was my goal as far back as high school, and the only
place I ever wanted to work was East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
I applied multiple times for the nursing internship until I had finally
gained enough experience to get it! Once my children were all in school
and the opportunity presented itself, I obtained my advanced practice degree.
As a medical professional, I consider my work my calling. We provide services
for many children who would otherwise have limited access to high-quality
health care. Watching “my babies” grow up brings me so much
joy, and I never leave work without making 100% sure that I helped many
people during the course of my day.
