She is also a certified pediatric nurse and a certified pediatric emergency nurse.

She practiced at an adult Level I Trauma Center on a per diem basis for 6 years and lectured on various pediatric topics, both locally and nationally, for over 15 years.

Her years of experience in the emergency department and with pediatric surgery have given her many stories of real-life cases of common—and some uncommon—pediatric diagnoses.
