About me


Deb Aston, MSN, RN, CPN

I have been a Registered Nurse for 30 years and have worked exclusively with the pediatric patient population my entire career. I have loved every minute of it! 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.

I have an amazing daughter, Shea, who did not follow in my footsteps to become a nurse, however I forgive her for that as she followed her heart to work in broadcast journalism, and we both share a love of writing. While Shea is “living the dream” in NYC, I am an empty-nester and have two beautiful Golden Retriever rescue dogs, Riley and Gracie; they are excellent company and are a “girl’s best friend”.
