Behavioral and Developmental Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Makenzie Wesner is a behavioral and developmental pediatric nurse practitioner at Center for Developing Minds, with a background in pediatric neurodevelopment including the evaluation and treatment of children with autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and learning differences among various intellectual and genetic backdrops. With a focus on sensory processing, self-regulation and social development, Makenzie is committed to child, family and community-centered care and utilizes a strengths-based approach.

Prior to joining the CDM team, Makenzie practiced at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland in Behavioral Health & Psychiatry, where she helped improve services for children, teens and young adults with developmental disorders and trauma. During that time, Makenzie continued to strive for research reliability in autism diagnostics with the UCSF Service, Training, Advocacy & Research (STAR) Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. She is a contributing editor for DBMH Resource, an online collection of resources for pediatric providers through the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. Makenzie was elected to the NAPNAP Developmental, Behavioral & Mental Health Special Interest Group Board in 2016 and continues to serve as Co-Chair.

Throughout her graduate studies, Makenzie practiced as a behavioral therapist through Red House Behavior Resources in San Francisco. Before this, Makenzie worked as a teacher at Victory Academy in Oregon, a private non-profit school for children on the autism spectrum.

Makenzie completed her M.S. in advanced practiced pediatric nursing/P.N.P. at the University of California, San Francisco, with a minor in genomics. She is a certified public health nurse with a B.S. in Community Health and a B.A. in Spanish, both from Oregon State University.
