About Jami Valenzuela

Jami enjoys taking care of pediatric head trauma cases and seeing how much they can improve through intensive medical management, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation. She also enjoys following spina bifida and VP shunt patients and families throughout the years and watching them grow and succeed against all odds.

I absolutely love working with children and have worked in pediatrics my entire medical career. I attended the University of Oklahoma for a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, and graduated in 2007. I worked at OU Children's primarily in the PICU and various other units for several years as a nurse where I grew and learned more than I ever though imaginable. I wanted more growth in my career and to further my education, so I went on to obtain a Master of Science degree as a Primary Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at the University of South Alabama and started working in Pediatric Neurosurgery in 2014. I recently added a Post-Masters Graduate Certificate in Pediatric Acute Care in 2020 from the University of Tennessee. I have loved my journey through pediatric medicine and my job as a Pediatric Neurosurgery NP has been very rewarding in so many ways. I can't imaging working in any other field or environment. On a personal note, I am married with 2 daughters and we have 3 little dogs who run the household! I am a huge OU football fan. BOOMER SOONER! On my free time, I love to travel to new places, go to concerts, explore the outdoors, try new recipes, do at home projects, and spend time with my family.
