Laura Kilgus is a pediatric nurse practitioner in CHKD's emergency department. She started her career as a registered nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit, and decided to go back to school to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. She wanted to expand her knowledge and scope of practice while continuing to care for children.

When she's not working, she enjoys traveling with her husband, snuggling up with their two cats and dog, and getting outside in nice weather.
