About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

My grandmother says it all started when she gave 3 year-old me a doctor toy set. I say the beginning was in 7th grade when I declared neurons to be my favorite type of cell. Nothing else fascinates me as much as medicine. I love every part, the science, meeting new people, reading about new research, and, most importantly, helping people. Watching people get better is the best part.

What I want my patients to know about me:

It is incredibly important to include patients of all ages in the treatment-planning process whenever possible. I provide recovery-oriented and patient-centered care. This means that I focus on helping patients meet their goals and living their best lives.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

You can often find me at an antique mall. I like to search for collectibles. I'm always looking to add to my collection of medical antiques and Harley Quinn memorabilia.
