About Me



Certified Physician Assistant

Veteran, Pediatric Physician Assistant with 20+ years of experience in general, urgent and emergent care pediatrics.


Pediatric Healthcare Background

I'm the founder of FIRST BREATHS TO FIRST STEPS. I have worked my entire career with kids - in private practice,  a regional children's hospital, urgent and emergent pediatric care settings.  I've also helped start a pediatric convenient care clinic to provide care after hours.


Mother of Three

I'm married and blessed with 3 sons that I've  raised to young adulthood. Having worked with thousands families to bridge the gap between medicine and hands on parenting - I help you become confident parents!

More About Bev

I love children...truly  blessed with three of my own. I'm dedicated to helping you figure out what you need to do parenting right!

For most of my pediatric career, I've discovered the HUGE need for more guidance and support or our newborn families.  We spend a lot of time preparing you to deliver your baby but not enough time helping you after.  

This lack of support, gave birth to FIRST BREATHS TO FIRST STEPS, where I help you become a confident parent - enjoying your new role.
