Valerie works with all four orthopaedic surgeons to provide care for pediatric orthopaedic patients. She believes one of the most rewarding aspects is seeing young children get back to the sports and activities they enjoy most. Val also believes in the importance of educating the pediatric population about maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
Valerie graduated from the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions in 2019, with her Masters of Science in Nursing and became a certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Previously, she graduated from Emmanuel College in Boston, MA in 2016 with a degree in biology and health sciences. She is originally from West Warwick, RI.
