My approach to Pediatrics is to look at every patient when they come into the office as if they were my own. I enjoy meeting the parents, developing relationships with them, and establishing a plan of care that works for the entire family. On a personal note, I’m the mom of two boys myself and I enjoy running, so I can relate to the busy moms who come into our office.
Etowah Pediatrics is fortunate to have Becky Strunk, CRNP and her wealth of experience as a nurse practitioner and a mother. As a mom to two boys, she can relate to the parents of her patients with first-hand experience. Ms. Strunk is an important part of the team approach at Etowah Pediatrics. Her outgoing and warm personality make her an important part of your care team.
“I love working with kids of all ages,” says Ms. Strunk. “I love their innocent outlook on life, and I love talking with them as you never know what they will say next.”
As an avid runner, she is passionate about working with children to be healthy and active. Becky believes in and wants her patients to understand how important preventive wellness is including exercise, smart food choices, and overall wellness. She carries this passion out in her personal life as well. She works with the local runners’ club to support and organize several charitable fundraising runs in the community, many geared to children. In addition, she trains and runs marathons.
Becky enjoys spending time with her family, especially outdoor activities such as hiking.
