Holly Prather, a Kansas City native, is a board certified pediatric nurse practitioner. She earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from Avila University in 2013 and her Master’s of Science in Nursing from Saint Louis University in 2018. Holly previously worked at The University of Kansas Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unity (NICU) before joining Lee’s Summit Physicians Group in 2014 as a pediatric registered nurse. In 2019, she transitioned to the provider role and started working as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner.
Holly chose pediatric medicine because she adores children and their resilience despite illness. She enjoys interacting with children and adolescents and hopes to empower parents to play an integral part in the diagnosis and treatment of their children. Keeping her patients physically and emotionally healthy, as they grow, learn, and achieve is very rewarding to Holly. She is honored that parents trust her with their most prized possessions—their children—and feels privileged to be a part of her patients’ families.
Outside of work, Holly enjoys traveling with her husband, spending time with family and friends, and staying active. She is a busy-body so to-do lists are a must. Though she prefers warm weather, she loves anything pumpkin flavored because it makes her think of fall. She and her husband, Cole, are overjoyed to welcome Baby Prather in December 2019!
