Sheri Vlam, Pediatrics

About Sheri:

Sheri is from the Great White North of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She is a Canuck at heart, but loves Utah and the community she has found here. Sheri received her Master’s Degree in Nursing in 2004, with an emphasis in Pediatrics and is a board-certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, as well as an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Her Master’s thesis, focused on diagnostic practices of ADHD, was published in the Pediatric Nursing Journal (PNJ).

Her face may have a few wrinkles (who among us doesn’t?), but they are only from constant smiles and laughter at just how honest and adorable her young patients can be. She takes great enjoyment in being able to watch her patients grow from infancy to young adults and particularly cherishes the times when those former patients bring in children of their own.

Sheri has three children of her own, with whom she likes to go hiking and camping with, and she understands that while parenting can be incredibly rewarding, it can also be stressful. She always takes time to listen to a parents concerns and Sheri values parents’ opinions and loves talking with them about the care of their newborn to teenager.

Parent Feedback

We've been going to Families First for nearly 10 years. We've seen many providers and loved them all. I love that I can get in quickly when my kids are hurt or sick. No doubt they have the best pediatricians in the valley.
