Why did you choose to work at Rainbow Pediatric Center? When I met the team I could tell that they truly care about the
families that walk through the door and place a special emphasis on being approachable and accessible. I also appreciate
how Dr. Reddy and the rest of the team strive to implement the latest and greatest so they can best serve the
healthcare needs of kids in Jacksonville.
What do you enjoy about working with kids? Kids have such a fresh and fun perspective on life. I love how children have
an inherent drive to grow and learn new things; it’s so rewarding to support that growth and partner with parents to
help kids thrive!
What is your area of expertise? Prior to joining Rainbow Pediatrics, I worked as a nurse for 6 years on the respiratory
floor at Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Whether your child is fighting RSV or managing asthma, my experience as a bedside
nurse has deepened my understanding of how best to provide care for respiratory conditions.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not at Rainbow Pediatrics? When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with
friends and family. I’m always up for a game night! You may also find me diving into a good book or podcast with a cup
of coffee in hand. Staying active is important to me as well – I joined the YMCA a few years ago and love trying new
If you only had 3 words to describe yourself what would they be? Dependable, flexible, and kind
What is your favorite children’s book? Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss
Tell me about your family? My husband and I both grew up in Jacksonville and have put down roots in this community,
but my extended family is scattered all over the US! We get together as often as we can and they mean the world to me.
Of course, I can’t forget to mention my loving and slightly high-maintenance Italian greyhound, Piper!
One interesting fact about yourself? I played the oboe in band from middle school all the way through college.
