As a graduate of Columbia University’s School of Nursing, Ms. Gross began working as a registered nurse caring for patients in a Neurological/Neurosurgical inpatient stepdown unit at the New York Presbyterian Millstein campus, where she developed a passion for the neurological patient population. She then completed her Masters of Nursing degree at Columbia University School of Nursing and became a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner in 2011 from the ANCC. After 8 years as an inpatient RN, she was recruited to be the nurse practitioner for the Columbia University Headache Center, joining in July 2014. Currently, in collaboration with attending physicians, she manages chronic headache and facial pain disorders in the outpatient setting. She is actively involved in clinical research trials for the development of new headache treatments. She functions as a liaison for the patients, helping them navigate their care amongst various members of our multidisciplinary team and providing emotional support to patients and their families.
