Bio

I am a neonatal Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, WI. I was a neonatal nurse for 9 years prior to becoming a NNP in 2010. My areas of expertise includes skin care and diaper dermatitis in neonates. I have published and presented locally and nationally on these areas. I have also been president of SWANN a chapter under NANN in Wisconsin (2011-2015). I currently function as the vendor coordinator for the chapter and also mentor the upcoming presidents.
