Board member spotlight: Alicia Smith - Continuing Education Co-Chair

Alicia has been a pediatric nurse practitioner for 10 years, after graduating from Emory University in 2008. She worked for 4 years in general pediatrics in Rome, GA then moved to work in pediatric neurology in 2013. In her practice, Alicia sees children with a wide range of neurologic disorders, including epilepsy, cerebral palsy, ADHD, autism, and tic disorders. Alicia enjoys the challenges and rewards that come with working with children with special needs. A particular area of interest is children with ADHD and ensuring they are optimally successful in school.

In her spare time, Alicia enjoys traveling and spending time with her 3 year old nephew, Owen (included in photo). She also sings with the Atlanta Women's Chorus. This is a diverse 70 member chorus of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds. Shameless plug - the AWC has their holiday concerts on 12/13 at 7:30 pm and 12/16 at 3pm at Grace United Methodist in Atlanta - come join us!

Preceptors Needed!!

Jonnie Dennis is in need of a pediatric preceptor.  This is her first pediatric rotation but it will be her last year of nurse practitioner school as she is slated to graduate in May 2020.  Her current background includes medical surgical nursing along with emergency nursing as well as urgent care. At the emergency department as well as the urgent care, we treat pediatric patients but none of the staff are formally trained in pediatrics. She is looking to start her rotation May of 2019 to run a total of 9 weeks to complete 135 hours.  She currently lives in McDonough, GA and she works at Kaiser Urgent Care and Emory University Hospital Emergency department PRN. She is a Clayton State University student and she has been advised her preceptor must have at least one year of practice. If you can help Jonnie, please contact her at: jonniedennis@gmail.com.


Esi Fosua Yeboah is currently a family nurse practitioner student at Harding Carr College of Nursing. She will be starting her Pediatric clinical in Spring 2019 (January) and she is looking for a great pediatric health practitioner to be her preceptor during her clinical experience. She wants to be a good practitioner therefore she expects to learn from the best. She would be needing approximately 120 clock hours of these clinical rotation and would be with you for about 10-12 weeks in order to satisfy this requirement for her degree and board certification ultimately. This means that she would be with you 1-2 days in a week depending on your patient care hours in your clinic. If you can help Esi, please contact her at: eyeboah@harding.edu.


Lindsay Flanagan is in need of a primary care nurse practitioner who's not in a specialty setting (i.e., not neuro) but a more general primary care setting for 1-2 days per week, more if available, for both January-April and May-August. If he or she is in the Atlanta area or greater Atlanta area that would be great. If you can help Lindsay, contact her at: lindsaycflanagan@gmail.com.
