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 my entire career. 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.

My daughter, Shea, is a segment producer working in broadcast journalism, and we both share a love of writing.

I am an empty-nester, and I have a pack of beautiful Golden Retriever rescue dogs, Riley, Gracie, and Sammie; they are excellent company and are a “girl’s best friend”.
