I was born in Whittier, California and moved to Arizona when I was 21 to finish my degree in nursing. In 2010 I graduated with my bachelors in nursing from Northern Arizona University. From there, I took my first nursing job in the pulmonary ICU and 4 years later transitioned to dialysis, specializing in peritoneal dialysis.
In 2018 graduated from Grand Canyon University with my master's in nursing and became a Family Nurse Practitioner. During my time in school, I discovered I had a passion for working in pediatrics and was given the extraordinary opportunity to both work with and learn under Dr. Wooten. I am married and have two children. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as golfing, playing soccer, and playing guitar.
