My name is Lauren Carhartt and I am a certified pediatric nurse practitioner. I completed my bachelor’s degree in nursing at the University of Florida in 2006 and then accepted a position in the Emergency Department of Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where my career in pediatrics began. It is here that I developed a profound sense of caring for children and their families. I found myself continually impressed by the resilient nature of children. The children I have been fortunate enough to work with are an inspiration for me to serve and help others, and working in pediatrics is truly a privilege and a blessing.
I now consider the Valley of the Sun home, and since moving to Phoenix I have enhanced my training by obtaining a master’s degree in nursing leadership at Grand Canyon University and a pediatric primary care nurse practitioner post master’s degree from the University of South Alabama. With this advanced training, it is my goal to keep your child healthy so that he or she can grow and thrive into adulthood.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son and husband, traveling, hiking, camping, gardening and photography.
I look forward to meeting you and caring for your child!
