Who we are

Ijon, a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children's Mercy.

Ijon's story

I was a collegiate athlete and student at the University of Central Missouri, then later attended Avila University, where I pursued a career in nursing. I chose this field because someone close to me had experienced the loss of a baby and I wanted to make a difference in the lives of neonates that have a fighting chance. I am now a Neonatal Intensive Care Staff Nurse at Children’s Mercy. I came back to work at CM because of the great experience I had here during clinical rotations, and I knew that it had the top NICU in the area. I love working with a care team dedicated to our smallest patients – and there is so much gratification in witnessing a baby who gets to go home! To all the nursing students out there who are just beginning their journey, hold onto that dream and “be bold, be brave, be you!”
