Jeanne McEntire, Nurse Practitioner

Jeanne was born and raised just outside of New York City. Her caring nature combined with a love for children, teaching and science led her into her beloved field of pediatric nursing. Jeanne earned her undergraduate degree in nursing at Binghamton University in upstate New York. After working as an inpatient pediatric nurse at Mt. Sinai in NYC, Jeanne moved to Chicago and worked as a nurse educator at the University of Chicago Children’s Hospital. While in Chicago, Jeanne earned her master’s degree as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at DePaul University.

Since living in California, Jeanne has worked as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in private practice, a nursing instructor at Santa Ana College and Stanbridge University, and a school nurse in independent schools. 

She raised her two daughters, along with many chickens, dogs and bunnies, in San Juan Capistrano. She now resides in Dana Point, and enjoys visiting her daughters in college, playing with her French bulldog, walking on the beach, and doing yoga.

We love Coastal Kids. It’s a wonderful practice. We feel very well taken care of by all the doctors. Dr. Baron has been our primary doctor and we just love her. She is trustworthy, warm, helpful and very professional

How lucky we are to have found Dr. Alyse Baron at Coastal Kids! She has been our pediatrician since our 7 year old was born! She is brilliant, patient and calm. There is nothing more nerve-wracking than questions about your child’s well-being and both my husband and I could not feel more confident with Dr. Baron. She does all of our well-checks and sick visits but also is invaluable with advice re: sleep training, nutrition, potty-training, and even behavior! We can’t recommend her enough and feel lucky to have her taking care of our kids!
