Leah Childress, FNP-C

  • NPI Number:

Leah Childress is a Nurse Practitioner with over ten years of experience in the nursing field. She began her career in 2009 as a Registered Nurse, first working on a Mother-Baby unit and then a Cardiovascular/Telemetry Unit. After graduating with her Master’s Degree in 2012, she worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner at a Primary Care Clinic for seven years. When her two-year-old son had a severe, allergic reaction to cashews, Leah brought him to Allergy Partners of Hampton Roads for treatment, where he was quickly diagnosed with asthma, received expeditious relief from his symptoms, and was put on a long-term care plan.

The quality of care and the experience her family had at Allergy Partners sparked a passion in Leah to learn more about asthma and allergies which eventually drove her to a career change to the field of asthma, allergy, and immunology. As a Nurse Practitioner at Allergy Partners, Leah will draw on the depth, education and experience of the Allergy Partner’s team, and will incorporate patient education and counseling to develop tailored, individual health care plans for her patients while empowering them as equal partners in their own health care.

Ms. Childress lives on the Peninsula with her two boys and her husband. She has a passion for fitness, is an avid runner, and has competed in marathons, triathlons and Spartan races. She is an accomplished photographer, enjoys reading and attending youth sporting events.
