She is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Medical College of Georgia and Mercer University. She is on staff at both Memorial University Medical Center and St Josephs/Candler hospitals.

Having breastfed all three of her children, Dr. Gheesling has a great passion for breastfeeding and in 2018 she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) so she could be better equipped to help her patients and their parents with breastfeeding. She continued her training to become one of the few physicians in the country to be board certified in Breastfeeding and Lactation Medicine. She is also a member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and is an AAP Breastfeeding Friendly Pediatrician.
