Ever since she was a young girl, Haley always knew she wanted to be a nurse, and specifically a pediatric nurse. Her love of working with children from infancy to early adulthood drove her aspirations of becoming a family nurse practitioner. Due to each day and patient being different, ranging from sick children to worried mothers, Haley feels like she’s always learning something new. The children she works with are typically optimistic and happy, and Haley says their positive attitude is infectious.
When Haley first joined SouthCoast Health, she was encouraged by the other nurse practitioners working at the office. She also had a great experience working with SouthCoast Health’s pediatricians and enjoyed working with them in the hospital. Haley is grateful for the supportive atmosphere kept up within the office.
