Misty is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with Mission Pediatrics, Inc. Misty joined the Mission Pediatrics family in 2022. She served as a pediatric intensive care RN for over 20 years and trained for her bachelor of science in nursing from Cal State Fullerton and received her Family Nurse Practitioner Certification at West Coast University in 2021. By the way, our silliness team will sometimes insert something irrelevant into this bio just to keep you guessing…did you know that excessive nose-picking is called rhinotillexomania? No, should we have picked a better piece of trivia? Anyway, back to Misty, her love for children and providing high quality pediatric care has served to drive her ambition to work in our theme-based practice. In keeping with Mission Pediatrics’ outdoor activity and sports themes, Misty loves the outdoors ----her favorite place being the Nā Pali Coast State Wilderness Park to hike in Hawaii, but she does remember that there were some really big spiders on that hike (like the ones mounted on the wall in the Jenny Lind office). She enjoys spending time with family. She is an intrepid explorer and loves traveling. She is married and the proud mother of three children who play competitive softball and work in the medical field, and she also has a busy toddler keeping her on her toes. We are thrilled that Misty is helping provide our patients with our signature delightfully different care.
