Meet Teresa Valdes, ARNP
My name is Teresa Valdes ARNP. I have been practicing as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner for 25 years in the Tampa area. Ever since I was 10 years old, I have been taking care of children and it has always been a passion of mine. As a practitioner, I have built a reputation on being able to relate to both children and their parents and to build long-lasting relationships with them. I am excited to bring my experience and reputation in the community to Sunshine Pediatrics of Lutz. I feel that, together with Dr. Patel and Dr. Mehta, we share the philosophy of a holistic approach to care.
I am a native of Tampa and live here with my husband and daughter. As a family, we enjoy hiking, camping, exploring, biking and swimming. We are also kept busy at home with a dog, a guinea pig and recently chickens. As a creative outlet, I also enjoy photography. I am an alumna of the Academy of Holy Names and received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Florida and my Masters in Nursing with specialization in Child Health from the University of South Florida.
