Quirsten is an LPN who graduated from Orange Ulster BOCES in 2013. Before obtaining her nursing license she was an art major, pursuing a degree in visual communications. Although she was pursuing a degree in art she kept finding herself in love with medicine and has decided to pursue nursing as her life long career. Interesting fact: Quirsten’s mother was an LPN following high school and obtained her RN in Pediatrics when Quirsten was 5 years of age. She has been a Pediatric nurse for 40+ years, and it appears as though she is following in her mother’s footsteps.   Before joining The Herbert Kania Pediatric family Quirsten worked as a pediatric home healthcare nurse, it was then that she fell in love with Pediatrics. She is currently working on her RN through Excelsior College. Quirsten has 3 children and 2 step children, 4 girls and one little boy. She thoroughly enjoys quality time with her large extended family and helping others.
