Rebecca was born and raised in Central Florida and recently moved back to Maitland to join the CENTA team. After spending her high school years as a member of the rowing team at Winter Park High School, Rebecca continued on to Indiana University as a student athlete. While attending Indiana University during her undergraduate years, Rebecca participated in many international medical missions; and her experience includes a study of traditional medicine in India as well as participated in several medical clinics throughout Central America. During her time abroad, Rebecca first realized her passion for caring for kids and their families. She has a love for learning about other cultures and incorporating a variety of perspectives into her nursing practice. In 2011, she graduated with honors at Indiana University and received her Bachelors of Science degree in Human Biology with a concentration in Human Health and Disease.
Upon graduation from IU, she returned to Florida for two years where she worked for a pediatric surgeons group in Central Florida. During this time Rebecca recognized that she looked forward to coming to work each day to take care of children. Her love for the pediatrics further inspired her to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner. In 2013 she moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend Vanderbilt University where she graduated with a Masters of Science in Nursing in 2015. Her unique perspective as a certified Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner brings a comprehensive approach to pediatric specialty care. Rebecca is the newest member to the CENTA team and looks forward to growing with the practice as a nurse practitioner. She strives to make everyday a new opportunity to bring high quality, compassionate care to her patients.
