Kimberly Harris, CPNP


Kimberly Harris, CPNP

Kimberly grew up in Marietta and always knew she wanted to work in the medical field. She received her registered nursing degree (RN) in 2004 and worked in many different fields of medicine. She jumped at the chance to become a school nurse in 2010 and it was that position that made her realize her calling was working with children in pediatrics. She then went on to earn her master’s degree in nursing and become board certified as pediatric nurse practitioner. Additionally, Kimberly is especially interested in nutrition, and how it positively and negatively affects a child’s growth and behavior. That’s why in 2016 she took a course through AFPA to become a certified holistic nutritionist. This passion has led her to realize that food truly is medicine and believes the discussion of diet is an important part of each well-check.

In her free time, she loves learning new things, reading, exercising, traveling, and spending time with her preteen daughter and teenage son.
