As a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, Sandra Sexton has worked in pediatrics her entire career, beginning as a registered nurse for 20 years. She understands that caring for children also includes caring for the family, and she loves teaching her patients and families.
In a hospital residency program, Sandra had on-the-job exposure to pediatrics working as a nurse. Fluent in Spanish, she interpreted for the residents and doctors, learning about pediatric health and wellness along the way. Becoming a certified pediatric nurse practitioner (CPNP) was the next step for her journey.
Sandra earned her Master of Science in Nursing from Arizona State University in 2009.
When she's not caring for patients, Sandra loves spending time with her husband of more than 30 years and her young granddaughter. She also enjoys exercising, practicing yoga, hunting and fishing.
