Philosophy:

Traci Cameron has worked with children for much of her life. “All through college I was a nanny and worked at a day care. I’ve always really enjoyed teaching and that drew me to this profession.”
As a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, Cameron feels education is a major part of her job. “It’s all about keeping children healthy, so education is probably about 60 percent of what we do. I’m a big advocate for child safety, healthy eating and exercise.
“In pediatrics, there’s a definite partnership with the parents. When you’re caring for their child, you’re caring for their whole family because your input affects everyone.”
