Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
This is not just a career to me, it is a calling. What a blessing it is to allow God to work through me to help others achieve or maintain optimal mental health.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I worked in a variety of mental health settings for 12 out of my 18 years as a registered nurse prior to becoming a nurse practitioner. I believe in working collaboratively with clients, their loved ones, and other healthcare professionals to safely manage mental health symptoms in the least restrictive setting. While my job is to evaluate and prescribe psychiatric medications, most conditions yield the most favorable results when therapy is included in the treatment plan. I just ask that my clients try to keep an open mind.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Family, sports, church, painting, reading, playing with my dog, Netflix
