I began my nursing career in the Emergency Department at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In 2010, I returned to school to complete my Masters-Nurse Practitioner degree at the University of Toronto where I focused my training on primary pediatrics and Global health. After graduating, I worked as Nurse Practitioner under the division of Adolescent Medicine with a clinical focus on patients with malnutrition and eating disorders. During that time I established a Nurse Practitioner-led Malnutrition & Eating Disorder Outpatient Clinic specializing in the treatment of children under the age of 12. The clinic is currently the only specialized program for young patients in Ontario. I then returned as a nurse practitioner to the Emergency Department where I took the lead in establishing and defining the role in the ER. In addition to clinical care, I focused on organizing educational initiatives such as bed side teaching sessions for medical and nursing students in the division.
I recently relocated to Boston and have been working as nurse practitioner at the neurology department at BCH where I provide clinical evaluation and management for pediatric patients requiring an urgent neurology assessment.
I am particularly interested in global health and have several experiences volunteering abroad.
