I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with public health background. I have been in healthcare for more than 20 years, and I have been in an NP role for over 15 years. My clinical expertise includes managing acute pediatric illnesses and minor injuries. My research interests lie in children with autism spectrum disorder and their families.
