Elizabeth Cross, APRN, PNP-BC

Child Neurology, Far West Office

Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Liz attended Virginia Tech where she graduated with honors and earned her first bachelor of science in biology in 2004. She then moved to Baltimore, Maryland to attend the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing where she completed her second bachelor of science, this time in nursing.

Liz worked for several years as a registered nurse in the Baltimore area, including a pediatric burn unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, followed by a private urgent care center. During this time, she continued her graduate studies at Johns Hopkins and earned her master’s degree in 2009, along with certification as a pediatric nurse practitioner.

Liz then spent time volunteering in Tanzania, Africa as a maternal and child health nurse before settling in Austin. She most recently worked at Pediatric Specialty Services in general neurology. Throughout her career, she has enjoyed broadening her technical neurology skill set by working in both the clinic and hospital setting.

Liz is the proud mother of two – a daughter and son – who loves spending time with her family, swimming, camping, sewing, and traveling.
