What drew you to work at SoCal Food Allergy?
I was introduced to the world of food allergies when I worked in an allergy office as a nurse. I really enjoyed working with this patient population and being able to be a part of a kid’s journey towards the hope of food and allergy freedom. SCFAI gave me the opportunity, now as a Nurse Practitioner, to continue to be a part of this journey for patients.
What is your most memorable SoCal Food Allergy moment?
Getting to see the excitement of both the family and the patients after completing the final food challenge to reach remission will always be memorable. There is always so much joy, excitement, and a sense of accomplishment during that visit for the patient and family (and staff!) after seeing all their hard work pay off.
