About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Originally, I was working at Shady Grove Family Care as a medical secretary. I later worked as a registered nurse on the Med/Surg floor at Waynesboro Hospital and then later transitioned to the Emergency Room. After completing school to become a nurse practitioner, I knew I wanted to work in a wound clinic and be autonomous. I served as the Waynesboro Hospital Wound Care Committee Chairperson for several years. I eventually started to see myself in more of the family care role though.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I grew up in Greencastle, so my family has kept me in the area. I spent a semester in Goshen, Indiana, when I was studying elementary education, but came home to change majors. At the time, I was commuting to school in Indiana with a girl who was in nursing. So when I came back home I decided to pursue that. I'm looking forward to working the brand new walk-in clinic in Waynesboro because of my emergency room background. I like the unknown, but I do like the helping patients with chronic disease management. The variety and balance is what I really enjoy. I'm looking forward to working with patients and developing that relationship.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy mostly outdoor activities, such as working in the yard in the summer and sledding in the winter. I also enjoy sewing and reading historical fiction.
