Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I entered a career in health care as it combined my love of science, teaching and caring for others.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I love to teach and help people understand the disease process. I expect my patients to be active participant in their care.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I am an avid reader—I am always trying to learn new things, so it is rare to see me without a book or journal article. I am also a "band mom" with one kid in HS marching band and one in college marching band so we go to a lot of football games!
