Before pursuing her degree as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, Pittsburg native Lara Rowe was a registered nurse at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. There she cared for chronically and seriously ill children on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Now Ms. Rowe uses her experience helping children at the ETMC First Physicians clinic in Pittsburg. Being able to pursue her dreams in her hometown is extra special to Ms. Rowe. “There are a lot of people I graduated from high school with who now bring their kids to see me. It’s just really neat to be part of the community again.”
As a pediatric specialist and a mother of three, Ms. Rowe knows the importance of listening. “I’m always willing to sit down and talk to the parents about their concerns and get to know the child. For me it’s just very rewarding to be able to make somebody feel better. It’s what I always wanted to do.”
