Whitney joined the team at the Sean N. Parker Center for Asthma and Allergy Research at Stanford University as the lead nurse practitioner in 2013, where multi-allergen food desensitization with and without omalizumab (Xolair) was pioneered. In January 2016, she established the food allergy treatment program at the Asthma and Allergy Medical Group of the Bay Area in Walnut Creek, CA. The increasing prevalence of food allergies and patient interest made Whitney realize the enormous unmet need for this therapy worldwide. In 2017 she felt compelled to open the National Allergy Center and began treating patients with state of the art food allergy therapy. Whitney is expanding the National Allergy Center to offer this life changing therapy across the country.
Whitney has dual board certifications as a pediatric and family nurse practitioner and is experienced treating patients of all ages. She received a Masters in Nursing from Vanderbilt University and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University. Before treating patients with food allergies she worked with the Centers for Disease Control n a nationwide research tour focused on pediatric health and nutrition.
