My name is Angela Zearing and I am a certified pediatric nurse practitioner and lactation consultant. I completed my bachelor’s degree in nursing at Saint Louis University in 2009. I have worked as a nurse in a variety of hospital settings including adult care, but I discovered my passion for pediatrics while working at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. I love that pediatrics allows me to care for not only the patient, but the entire family.
I continued on with my education at Saint Louis University and earned my master’s degree in nursing to become a pediatric nurse practitioner and nurse educator. I’ve held multiple roles in nursing education settings as well as helping to precept nurse practitioner students in the clinic. In transitioning from providing care to children in the hospital setting to the office setting, my goal is to collaborate with parents to find the best way to keep kids happy and healthy. As a certified lactation consultant I have a special interest in helping new moms and babies establish and maintain a successful breastfeeding relationship.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with family. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we recently welcomed a baby boy in July 2017!
I can’t wait to meet and get to know your family!
