Lauren Siebrase-Wilkes
I bring over a decade of pediatric neurology experience from my tenure at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital Neuroscience Institute. I have sub-specialty focus in epilepsy and while in Memphis participated in nearly two dozen clinical trials and studies. I am on several national advisory boards, special focus groups, and has presented nationally on pediatric epilepsy as well as an active member in several professional organizations.

My family and I became transplants to Iowa in April 2021 from the Memphis, Tennessee area. I am the first Advanced Practice Provider (APP) ambulatory services supervisor for the Stead Family Children's Hospital and look forward to this next step in my career by leading an amazing group of APPs within the general pediatric and subspecialty areas.

I will continue to practice in pediatric neurology by providing quick access to patients in our New Onset Seizure Clinic with my fellow ARNP colleague, Dan Crawford. Furthermore, I am pleased that I will continue my efforts in fighting for epilepsy warriors in this area by partnering with Michael Ciliberto, MD and Lyndsay Harshman, MD, MS in Iowa's only Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Clinic designated by the TSC Alliance. Lastly, I am excited to be apart of the new leadership within our department that will continue to provide excellent care to children across the the state of Iowa by working collaboratively with APP, physician, and administrative colleagues.

My family and I look forward to fully integrating ourselves as Iowans with all the opportunities Iowa City has to offer those lucky enough to call this place home! My kiddos are most excited about going sledding on "real snow" for the first time in their lives (ok–maybe my husband and I are too) and of course Iowa Football! Go Hawkeyes!
