Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I am attracted to providing health care to families and communities since this involves many skills including education, effective communication of potentially complicated concepts, and demonstration of compassion in dealing with difficult situations. As a nurse practitioner I believe in developing relationships with patients that allow for best possible outcomes, for patients, their families and the communities in which we reside. A healthier individual makes for a healthier family, which in turn helps to develop a healthier community. This is something I want to help create.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am passionate about health care and am dedicated to providing care that will allow patients to have the knowledge and tools necessary to optimize their health. After being away for many years, I have returned to my hometown and consider it an honor and privilege to be able to care for the patients in the community. I am thankful to be part of WellSpan Health and join their efforts to deliver exceptional care to promote healthy communities.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Spending time with family and friends is important to me. I also enjoy reading, gardening, quilting, and travelling. Occasionally, Pinterest makes me think I can be crafty and I enjoy pursuing those adventures.
