Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Practicing medicine allows me to work in a field that is interesting, often challenging, and never boring. The human body is the most amazing creation and typically needs little intervention to maintain a healthy state. Having the opportunity to educate others on how to take care of themselves both physically and mentally is very satisfying.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I encourage my patients to actively participate with me in managing their health.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy spending time with my husband and four children, ages 9-27. We lead an active lifestyle and spend a lot of time outdoors, camping, hiking, or on the water. Our favorite vacations are anywhere there is sand. I also like to refinish furniture and bring new life/purpose to someone else's junk.
