About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

In the 1950s, Dr. Loretta Ford envisioned a new role for nurses; a role where they could assess, diagnose, and treat medical conditions on their own. I chose to become a nurse practitioner to offer high-quality, cost-effective healthcare to millions of Americans who would otherwise struggle to access care. I believe empathy is the key toward good quality healthcare and patient satisfaction, something that is always at the heart of a nurse.

What I want my patients to know about me:

Every day is a challenge that I love. I never know what problem may walk through my door. There are always new things to learn and keep up to date with, as medications, medical techniques, and procedures evolve. I have a great deal of patience and understanding toward vulnerable populations. I take the time to educate my patients and ensure they understand their treatment plan before leaving my office. I also like to have fun and lighten the visit with humor!

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

My husband and I collectively have six children, ranging from newborn to adult, so you can imagine how busy we are! I'm a fan of the Baltimore Orioles, and Penn State Football. I enjoy vacationing - in our camper, at the beach, or at an all-inclusive resort (basically anywhere warm!)
