“My job is not a job. It’s my life, my mission. Being born on Valentine’s Day and having had heart surgery made me what I am today. Fate decided when I was born what my destiny would be. I am thankful every day to have been chosen for this.”

Crawford is a board-certified pediatric nurse practitioner. She specializes in cardiac neurodevelopment and single ventricle outpatient care. She also has experience with pulmonary hypertension and mild dysautonomia.

She is an advanced practice provider (APP) for the Atrium Health Pediatric Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program, the Levine Children’s Hospital HEARTest Yard Congenital Heart Center and CHAMP: Complex Congenital Heart At-Home Monitoring Program.

Crawford was recognized by the North Carolina Great 100 Nurses.

She chose pediatric cardiology due to her own experiences and the cardiac surgery she underwent as a teenager. She has had the opportunity to work in an ICU setting, step-down and outpatient. She enjoys pediatric cardiology and caring for patients and their families.

Crawford received her master’s degree in nursing at the University of Maryland.

She has participated in the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Initiative Collaborative, the Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Outcomes Collaborative and the Pediatric Acute Care Cardiology Collaborative.

Crawford is married with 2 stepchildren and 3 dogs. They love to spend time together outdoors floating in their pool.
