Natalie Elzinga CPNPI knew from a very young age that I wanted to pursue a profession that combined my love of science and medicine with my passion for children. Working as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner fulfills both. I enjoy being able to watch children grow and develop from infancy to young adulthood.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. In my spare time I enjoy watching the St. Louis Cardinals, being outdoors, and cooking. Prior to moving to Kansas City, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Calvin College in Michigan and continued on to earn my Master’s Degree in Nursing from Vanderbilt University in August of 2016.

I have been grateful to be a nurse practitioner at Cockerell and McIntosh since February of 2017. I look forward to meeting you and your family as well as taking care of your child’s healthcare needs!
