Keystone Pediatrics’ Sherah Devore is new to the area, but what’s not new is her love of the medical field. A Registered Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Sherah knew from a young age that she wanted a career in medicine.
“I grew up in a family of nurses, so I knew early on that I wanted to enter the medical field,” she said. “I always enjoyed spending time with kids throughout high school and college so I hoped my career choice would involve kids in some way. Being able to practice medicine in the field of pediatrics is the perfect fit!”
Her favorite part of her career choice is the difference it makes in the lives of her patients. “I love being able to connect with families on a personal level and encourage them through the journey of raising healthy children,” Sherah said. “I love having the time to sit down and listen to a parent voice their concerns and be able to spend the time trying to collaboratively work on solutions.”
New to the area, Sherah is looking forward to exploring what the northeast region of the country has to offer.
“I grew up in Versailles, Kentucky. It is a small horse town around half the size of Chambersburg. I love that Franklin County is so close to many large east coast cities and I look forward to being able to visit them soon.”
When she learned about the mission of Keystone Health, she knew working here would be the right fit for her.
“I was amazed by the practice, staff, and plentiful resources at Keystone,” she said. “The passion of Keystone clearly shines through and I wanted to be a part of something making such a notable difference in the community.”
When she’s not at work, she enjoys being outside and being active. Her favorite activities include hiking, kayaking, running, and attending fitness classes. She also loves to bake.
An interesting fact about Sherah is that she was a division one college cheerleader on the all-girl squad at Western Kentucky University.
“My last year we ranked third at the Universal Cheerleaders Association College Nationals,” she said. “Go Tops!”
Welcome to Keystone, Sherah!
