Sydney Rea is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner board certified in both Acute and Primary Care Pediatrics. Sydney spent 11 years caring for kids as a pediatric nurse before transitioning to a provider role. She treasures the opportunity to directly care for kids as a primary care provider for kids from the cradle through college (birth - 21 years old) while also meeting the needs of children, teens, and young adults struggling with an eating disorder or disordered eating. Sydney loves to promote health and wellness by learning about her patient's values and goals as she provides compassionate evidence based care.
Sydney's extensive clinical experience includes school based primary care, a pediatric primary care immersion, and several rotations in a variety of pediatric inpatient and subspecialty departments.
To rest and recharge, Sydney enjoys quality time with family and friends hiking and skiing, as well as curling up with a good book. In her spare time she delights in serving children and families who have been involved with the foster care system through a variety of non-profit organizations.
