LaShawn began her nursing career as a registered nurse in the surgical intensive care unit at MCG and then continued to grow as a nurse in the pediatric operating room, interventional radiology and mammography. LaShawn has been a nurse practitioner in the Pediatric Gastroenterology (GI) Clinic since 2017. Her clinical practice involves relieving discomfort in children by diagnosing and treating complications within the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, pancreas, and gallbladder.
