Peak Pediatrics in Winter Park welcomes Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Miesha Anderson, to its medical staff.

Originally from Muskogee, Okla., Anderson attended the University of Oklahoma where she obtained a Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2004. At the university, she was offered a “nurse externship” at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., where she worked in the Neuro Intensive Care Unit at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Later, she moved to Arizona to work with the Emergency Department at Hopi Health Care Center. She enrolled at Arizona State University in 2006 where she obtained her Masters of Science in Nursing with a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner certificate in 2008.

From Arizona, along with her husband and their dogs, Anderson moved to Wisconsin and joined the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. She also began working as Pediatric Child Abuse Nurse Practitioner at the Child Advocacy Center at the Children’s Hospital.

In 2009, Anderson and her husband Rob were given the opportunity to move to Winter Park. Since then, Anderson has been employed as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at The Children’s Hospital at Denver in the Emergency Department. Now, she also provides primary care for children at the Peak Pediatrics office in Winter Park as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.

“I love it here in Winter Park, the community has been so inviting and nice to our family, we are excited to be a part of it,” said Anderson. Along with their daughter Addie, the Andersons enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, and other outdoor activities in their spare time.

“The staff is very experienced and caring at Peak Pediatrics. I love having the privilege of meeting families and children, watching them learn and grow, and having the ability to help them through more difficult times,” said Anderson. “I personally try to give 110 percent and work with the family to provide the care that is best for each individual family.”
