Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
As a young child, I played "baby doctor" and that just never went away. I experienced the loss of a parent very young in life and for the next 10 years heard "if only medicine would have known that back then." I think that made an impression on a young girl to want to help others prevent sadness. Kind of hokey sounding, but factual.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I intend to treat your child the same as I would want to have my child treated. I see myself as an extension of your family. My office partners and nurse practitioners are all great!
