“I love every aspect of child development and value my role as a child advocate in and out of the office. I view myself as a parent partner in solving problems that may develop and hope to always play the supportive role in the care of any child. I truly believe that a parent will always know their child best; I strive to follow their lead and provide them with the medical knowledge necessary to ensure the best care possible.”
Family has always been of utmost importance to Dr. Nordberg and she spends her free time enjoying outdoor activities or participating in community service with her husband and 2 kids, Konur and Emma.
