Pre-Surgery Nurse Practitioner
Healthcare is not only treating an individual but listening to, respecting and supporting patients and their families in more than just a clinical sense. Here at Akron Children's Hospital, I am able to perform family-centered care. This is one of the core reasons I became a nurse practitioner.
Lead Advanced Practice Practitioner
I’ve worked as a nurse practitioner at Akron Children’s Hospital for 7 years. As both an employee and a mother of a patient here, I have found this to be an incredibly friendly environment. We have many APPs who started their careers as nursing assistants, then went back to school to become RNs and later nurse practitioners. They are committed to continuing their careers here because it offers a great climate for them to begin their career or take it to the next level. Children’s is committed to the professional growth of APPs, and we have them in most of our clinical areas. We take pride in providing excellent care to patients and working collaboratively with our physician colleagues.

Certified Nurse Practitioner
I initially came here because the environment was so welcoming, and the investment in furthering my education was unmatched. When I finished graduate school, I found a great opportunity elsewhere, but I left with a heavy heart. While I loved what I was doing, I missed this place, these people, this culture. When the opportunity to return arose, there was nothing that could stop me from coming back. I love my job because I’m surrounded by people who love their job. The positive energy is infectious, and collaborating to provide the best care for kids is fundamental here.

Being an advanced practice provider at Akron Children’s Hospital is one of the best decisions I ever made. I am able to develop partnerships with community organizations and collaborate with many amazing providers caring for the children at Akron Children’s Hospital. Here I have the ability to develop my skills independently and have the support of the hospital as I continue with both my personal and professional growth.
