About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I was a nurse in Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine for 9 years at LGH, where medical residents encouraged me to go to medical school. I love to figure out what was going wrong with patients and especially emergency cases.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I enjoy working with patients and well trained nurses In the Emergency Dept. and Urgent Care. I take time to listen to patients which helps focus exam and treatment. I order x-rays and other tests only if exam and history warrants. Antibiotics are over prescribed for colds, cough, etc, so I choose only when appropriate. Encourage natural products with known benefits. Encourage and model healthy lifestyle. I keep up to date by attending Emergency Conferences yearly, and other CME activities.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

- Organic gardening of fruits and vegetables, then canning, drying or freezing as appropriate - Reading or listening to audio books - Hiking, tubing, kayaking or cross country skiing at our cabin along the Tuscarora Creek - Hosting family and friends at the cabin - Camping in national parks and traveling in foreign countries
