About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I have known I wanted to help people since age 8. I read a book about a missionary nurse's story and felt called to the profession. I have been involved in nursing since age 15 as a CNA, but since then, I continued to pursue my education to finally obtain my Master's Degree as a Nurse Practitioner. Many patients do not understand illness and how to improve health. I feel that I can provide medical, emotional and spiritual guidance to my patients.

What I want my patients to know about me:

First and foremost, I'm a follower of Christ. My Christian beliefs are my foundation of living. I grew up in Lancaster County until I went to nursing school in Kansas. One of my classes took me to Arizona to the Navajo reservation to work. I also lived and worked in Virginia for three years. I have worked in both the US and the mission field for many years in many roles, assisting with patients from birth to death. I have worked for Ephrata since 1988, except when I lived overseas.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I'm active in my local church. I love reading, listening to gospel music and crocheting. As a family, we are always delighted to serve God on mission trips. After my parents' experience with cancer, my husband and I purpose to grow our own food; including organic vegetables, fruits and animals.
