Amanda joined the team at Kids First in April 2022 after working as a nurse practitioner at Rush University and in specialty care at Lurie Children’s for 18 years. She moved to primary care to pursue her passion for connecting with families and building relationships. In primary care, Amanda is able to support the “bedrock of pediatric medicine” and help children and families experiencing a broad range of diagnoses.
Amanda loves the diverse community we serve at Kids First, as well as the supportive staff team. She’s particularly interested in helping kids with rashes, allergies and immune related disorders.
When she’s not at work, she enjoys working out, reading fiction and spending time with her kids and husband.
