I am originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but have called Chicago home for the past 16 years! I have been a registered nurse, always working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, for the past 9 years. My husband’s name is Henry, and we have a 3 year old daughter named Hazel, and our son, Holden who is almost 10 months old and happens to have Down syndrome. We live in the city and enjoy visiting all of the parks, the lakefront, museums, and most importantly RESTAURANTS!
I was a NADS basket receiver myself, and have a passion for parent support and hospital outreach, as I know how crucial those first moments, days, weeks, and months of receiving a Down syndrome diagnosis are! I am so happy to be here!
