About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

When I was a young girl, I would attend bible camp every summer. We could pick activities to do that week, and one year I choose first aid. A missionary nurse was there to teach us the first aid and would talk about giving care to those in need in Africa where she was a missionary. I was so intrigued by this, I decided then I wanted to be a nurse to bring medicine to those who have very little access. I have now been on several mission trips to a number of countries and look forward to many more.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My approach to medicine is looking at the whole patient, so I take more of a holistic approach to my practice. Everything around us and our experiences shape our health and well-being. We are not just diagnoses. I don't want to be here to just prescribe medications and send you out the door—I believe there is a lot more to medicine and healing then that. Health is about the physical, mental and social well-being—being sound in mind, body and spirit not just the absence of disease.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I love being outside in God's creation. Anything that gets me outdoors, I very much enjoy. I am an avid hiker and gardener. Digging in the dirt is my therapy. Growing my own food has a lot of satisfaction for me, and also I know exactly what I am putting in my body. I also have two fur-babies and try to spend as much time with them as I can. One of my dogs, Reesie, is a certified therapy dog on the Go Team Frederick, so I do a lot of volunteer events with her. I also work as a volunteer adoption coordinator for Lu's Labs, which is a rescue organization for Labrador Retrievers.
