At Pediatric Critical Care of South Florida, we strive to provide comfort, hope, and the best possible care to our patients, as well as their family and friends. We accomplish our mission thanks to our expertly trained and experienced staff in advanced pediatric critical care medicine. Their skills allow us to care for the most critically ill patients across South Florida and have made us a premier provider.
We’re happy to announce the addition of Zenaida Pacheco, APRN to the team. Zenaida will continue pushing PCCSF’s mission forward. Read on to get to know her!
I was born and raised in Miami, FL to Puerto Rican parents. Since I was a little girl, I was always intrigued by medicine and found gratification in helping others feel better. At the age of 15, my first job was in a medical billing office answering the phone and opening mail. I’ve been in scrubs ever since.
I’ve been a nurse for 11 years – ten of those were in the NICU, and the last three were in a leadership position as a Clinical Manager. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami in 2010 and completed the Pediatrics Nurse Practitioner track at Florida International University in 2020. This is my first opportunity as an APRN. My current professional interests lie in expanding my knowledge, exposure, and skill set in pediatric critical care.
My interests revolve around my family – my husband and three children – and that includes practicing my faith, music, dancing, sports, volunteering and traveling, just to name a few.
