Juli first began her nursing career at Finger Lakes Community College where she received her Associate’s of Science in Nursing. After graduating, she began to work as a nurse at a pediatric office in Rochester. Within that pediatric office she transitioned from being an office nurse, to an allergy nurse, to a research nurse. In 2000, she returned to school to obtain her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nursing from St. John Fisher College. After moving to Tidewater in 2006, Juli changed her career path and decided to dive into the research side of medicine. After being involved in pharmaceutical research for three years she was missing taking care of patients and their families. She then returned to school again to obtain her Master’s of Science degree in Nursing from Old Dominion University.
Since, Juli has earned her certification as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. Becoming a Nurse Practitioner was the perfect step for Juli. After being a nurse for over thirteen years and spending most of that time working with children and parents in pediatrics, she took pride in feeling like she helped someone every day when went to work. She also appreciated the involvement she had seen when working with several nurse practitioners and she wanted to experience that as well. Juli loves being around children, she says “Their behavior and spirit are contagious.” She is looking forward to working and getting to know the families at Renaissance and joining our team in caring for them.
