I have always wanted to work in the medical field. I thought about all the possibilities in the medical field and once I found the PA profession, it was exactly what I was looking for.

I have been a PA for over 25 years. I still thoroughly enjoy being a PA. I enjoy getting to know my patients and try deliver excellent care with compassion. This combination gives me job satisfaction and keeps me striving to do this best I can for my patients.

I like to spend time with family and friends. I enjoy taking care of my flower beds, hiking and traveling to new places. I watch soccer, coach soccer and sometimes even play soccer!
