Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:
At a young age, I had a very close family member suffer from a female-related terminal illness. During that time, I received exposure to medical staff, equipment, and experiences that some may never come across in a lifetime. This experience, however, intrigued not only my nursing journey but also my interest in Women's Health. In high school, I also had an opportunity to be in a program that provided clinical time in different areas of Chambersburg Hospital. After my time in Labor and Delivery, I knew I had found my match!
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am prepared at the master's degree level as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) specializing in both obstetrics and gynecology. Before completing my master's, I worked for over six years as a RN in labor and delivery. As a WHNP, I can provide comprehensive OB/gynecological services, including well women's care, contraceptive counseling/family planning, sexual health education, and pre-and postnatal care. I am passionate about advocating for women’s rights in healthcare and reproductive justice.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Outside of work, you can usually find me enjoying the outdoors, reading, cooking healthy recipes, or simply spending quality time with my husband, family, and friends. We have two Aussies, Penelope, and Wylie, who make our lives exponentially more fun! I also love to travel and try new places, food, and experiences as much as I can.
