I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl, as I love children. Being one of six children, having been a Pediatric nurse and then providing care as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and raising my own children, all have given me the good fortune to always have kids in my life. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to care for your children.

    Polly was great! She was extremely caring and did not rush my daughter when she was explaining her injury. She addressed my daughter's injury and took care of her with kindness and efficiency.
