She received her Doctor of Medicine in 2014 from University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine and was the recipient of the Academic Excellence Award. Dr. Rush completed her pediatric residency training in 2017 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN.
"Children captured my heart at a very early age - the innocence, love for life, blunt humor, and resilience of each child is truly humbling. As pediatricians, we have the unique opportunity to not only care for our patients, but we also impact the entire family unit. It is a true privilege and honor to be a special part of a developing child’s life and I treasure each experience they share with me.”
Dr. Rush is Board Eligible with the American Board of Pediatrics in 2017. Her specific areas of interest in patient care include asthma, allergy, obesity, and patient advocacy.
Outside the office, Dr. Rush enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends. You can find her fishing, traveling, reading, and supporting her favorite sports teams - Go Gators!
