I am an only child and was brought up by two incredibly loving parents that have been married for almost 30 years now. My father was born in Germany and my mother was born right here in Pennsylvania. She was adopted by my grandfather when she was 2-years-old. Knowing that this incredible act by my grandfather created such a beautiful family truly solidified Michael and I’s belief in the power of unconditional love and the ability to create a strong, beautiful family in a unique way.
I always knew that nursing would be my career path, as both my mother and grandmother are nurses. During college and high school, I was a nanny and babysitter to many children with health issues. I now have my ‘forever job’ as a district-wide School Nurse for Kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade. I hope to have my own health office in the near future as I become certified in school nursing and pursue my Master’s in Nursing!
Outside of work, I volunteer with the Gift of Life and other transplant agencies, as I myself am a transplant recipient and hope to give back to the field that changed my life. It’s been an honor to work with so many families over the years as it taught me so much about children and the family unit! Now, I am excited to welcome a child to my heart and home and begin my journey through motherhood.
