Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I always had an interest in nursing and how remarkable the human body is, and, although my career led me to the pre-hospital arena, becoming an CRNP was my career goal. I pursued acute care because I enjoy working with adults who are critically ill.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have several philosophies as a cardiology nurse practitioner. Firstly, we all have busy lives and schedules, so I do try to keep my appointments on time. Secondly, I believe strongly in education for my patients and their family. I practice evidence-based medicine as directed by American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I spend my time exercising and enjoy quality time with my family and great Danes. My family and I enjoy going to basketball and football games
