A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Heather graduated from The University of Alabama in 1996. She began her nursing career working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and discovered a deep love for caring for premature infants and their families. Over her years practicing as a Registered Nurse, Heather expanded her experience to the Pediatric ICU, the Neonatal Resuscitation Team in Labor and Delivery, and later to Pediatric Primary Care as she and her family lived in three states over five years, finally settling in Texas in 2010.
In 2015, Heather received her Master of Science in Nursing from Texas Woman’s University and her National Certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Although as a FNP she is trained to care for patients of all ages, Heather decided to concentrate her practice on pediatrics, and she is very proud to have dedicated her 25-year nursing career to the youngest and most vulnerable of patients.
As a two-time breast cancer survivor, Heather and her family are avid supporters of breast cancer awareness and research through their participation in various charities. She is also a supporter of the local fine arts community and has served on the Board of Directors of LakeCities Ballet Theater for many years. Heather and her husband, Jeff, have three beautiful daughters, and resides in Lantana, Texas. She looks forward to getting to know the patients and families of Kid Care Pediatrics.
