About me


Deb Aston, MSN, RN, CPN

I have been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years and have worked exclusively with the pediatric patient population. I have loved every minute of it! Kids are the best, and the most resilient when faced with medical challenges.

My background includes General Pediatrics/Adolescents, Pediatric Intensive Care, Peds Surgery/Post-Anesthesia Care, Peds Hematology-Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplant, Quality Improvement, and Nursing Supervision. Currently, I am working as a Nurse Clinical Care Coordinator for an insurance company, caring for the medically fragile pediatric patients in my community.

My daughter, Shea, is a segment producer working in broadcast journalism, and we both share a love of writing. I have two beautiful Golden Retriever rescue dogs, Gracie and Sammie, my “Golden Girls”!
