I am originally from California, my family and I relocated to Tennessee 16 years ago. I love being around water, from kayaking, float the river, or just sitting peacefully on a beach. I love listening to live music, and spending time with my kids and grandkids.
I have 3 beautiful daughters and 2 beautiful, very active grandkids. To me, family is the most important thing in life. My passion is helping others succeed, leading and teaching them to utilize their personal gains and knowledge in helping others succeed, to help guide those who have lost their way find their own path.
I am excited to be part of the CPE family, helping families stay healthy
I was a CNA for 2 years and now successfully been a Licensed Practical Nurse for 4 years and been blessed to experience myriads of specialties ranging from Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Psych and Stepdown ICU. My passion for healthcare started at a very young age being that my mom is also a nurse. I love the feeling I get from being able to care for someone and help for the betterment of the community.
I look forward to caring for more patients here at The Center for Pediatric Excellence and I am elated to work with such a wonderful staff. I am not only excited to work here but also to learn and experience more in the pediatric community.
I look forward to meeting and interacting with you and your family!
Hi! My name is Diana Blanco Franco, I am the bilingual receptionist here at CPE. I am responsible for handling the front desk, greeting visitors, answering telephones, taking messages, and other administrative support functions. This is my first year in the medical field. I love learning new things, challenging myself, I enjoy working with baby’s and kids, helping my community in any way I can, and I love to travel.
I graduated from John Overton High School in 2020 when COVID hit. I knew I wanted to work in the medical field but was unsure of what field to go into. I am so happy that I found Dr. Johnson’s office, I have learned so much, and have a newfound passion for being an advocate for our patients.
I am excited to continue to learn and be part of the CPE family.
