Caitlin Smart, CPNP
Joining CMG in April of 2017, we are pleased to welcome Caitlin Smart, Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner! Caitlin is a Hudson Valley native, growing up in Wappingers Falls, and she stayed in NY State for undergrad, attending Vassar College and the Columbia University School of Nursing, earning a BA as an RN, with a neuroscience and chemistry minor. She then continued at Columbia for her PNP certification.
Caitlin is interested in helping kids and adolescents with behavior and mental health issues, general adolescent health, reproductive heath, dermatology, weight management and encouraging health lifestyles.
Ms. Smart has a partner, Justin – “no kids or pets yet,” she says. Her interests and hobbies are many: hiking, quilting, reading, boating, creative writing, and perhaps most interesting, beekeeping with her dad. All that activity must give her an appetite for her favorite food: cheeses of all kinds, and “the stinkier the better, lol!” – except American cheese… one of the highest in salt. Another good lifestyle choice.
