Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I pursued a career in medicine for many reasons. I love helping people feel better and lead healthier lives. Medicine is a subject that has always interested me and seems to naturally "make sense" to me. I also love the challenges that come with practicing medicine. Finally, being a PA (physician assistant) allows me to have a fulfilling and active career, while also allowing the balance to have a happy and healthy family/personal life.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am here to help you feel better and be healthier. We can work as a team to identify and meet your personal health goals. I love educating patients, so questions are always welcomed.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Outside of seeing patients, I love to spend time with family and friends. In particular, I love playing games or playing outdoors with my husband and three children. I enjoy exercise, especially yoga, strength training and cardiovascular training. I love to read for fun. There are so many books and not enough time!
