I have worked for GI for Kids for over 11 years now and have always had a passion for children’s healthcare. I joined the practice in 2006 and since then I have cared for patients in our inpatient program during admissions as well as provided outpatient clinic care. I love working in pediatrics because of the connections we are able make with our patients and their families. I believe in providing holistic care to our patients and their families as well as nurturing their emotional needs along with their physical ones. It is my desire to provide not only leading edge medical care but emotional and loving support to the patient and family. I treat all the children I care for as if they were my own and desire to support the parents through their child’s healthcare journey. It is my goal for my patients and their families to take an active role so that we can provide the most comprehensive medical care.After receiving my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Tennessee Wesleyan University, I attended Vanderbilt University where I earned my Master of Science in Nursing- Pediatric Nurse Practitioner degree. I later returned to the University of Alabama, earning a Doctorate of Nursing Practice.

I enjoy working at GI for Kids because Dr. Al-Tawil has a passion for providing quality healthcare to children in East Tennessee and the surrounding area. It’s a privilege to work with physicians who are truly passionate about their patients. I strive to provide patient and family focused, technology driven, and holistically guided medical care to the children we serve.
