Tori was born in Austin and raised in Austin and Dripping Springs. She always knew she wanted to work with children and be in the medical field. While pursuing a Bachelors of Science degree, Tori worked as a nanny and volunteered with Child Life at Dell Children’s Medical Center. Shortly after graduating she went back to school for her Masters of Science in Nursing at The University of Texas at Austin. While working on her masters, Tori worked as a pediatric Registered Nurse on the Neuroscience unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center. She wanted to work more closely and develop long-term relationships with the patients and their families so she shifted gears and worked as an RN in a busy pediatric clinic. Her passion then led to her obtaining her post-masters certificate for Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Tori has five years of pediatric Registered Nurse experience and is excited to begin her career as a Board Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner! Both Tori and her husband Michael have family in Dripping Springs and South Austin, so it is only fitting that they call South Austin home. In her free time, you can find Tori spending time with family and friends, cheering on the Texas Longhorns, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen or traveling with her husband and dog Louis. They love to explore a new National Park each year. Louis, the Chihuahua, has even been hiking in Colorado!
