Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I have always been fascinated by anything medical, especially OB/GYN. When I was 5, I was asked by my teacher what I wanted to be when I grew up and I stated, "an obstetrician." I chose to be an OB/GYN nurse practitioner and love being able to spend extra time with my patients.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have been an OB/GYN nurse practitioner for 22 years and still absolutely love what I do. I love interacting with my patients, making them feel comfortable in an oftentimes uncomfortable environment, and answering their questions. I love my patients—they are so interesting!
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I LOVE to read! I enjoy contemporary novels, as well as ancient history, but especially my Bible. I have two dogs who are quite entertaining. I also enjoy spending time with family and good friends.
