Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Medicine is the foremost profession that allows for and develops wonderful, compassionate relationships when people are in need of comfort and healing. It is the art of healing and well-being in medicine that provides for communication and commitment that attracted me most. Putting service to others first is the most favorable part of my career in medicine. Collateral to the service portion is the amazing opportunity to be a lifelong learner, pursuing new skills and the personal interaction with an amazing patient population. As a physician, our training includes considering the impact of a persons lifestyle and community on their physical health. Treatment of the whole person, not simply an injured or sickened organ or body part, is paramount to my practice and quite simply stated, I love medicine!
What I want my patients to know about me:
My style of medical practice is to work in partnership with my patients for interventional radiology and The WellSpan Vein Clinic. I am dedicated to making sure that my patients achieve wellness and great health by focusing on what they can do for injury prevention, disease management and good health education. Treating the whole person and not simply their disease state allows for quicker healing, improved lifestyle outside of the disease state and allows us to become partners in their journey to healing. The human body has an enormous potential to heal itself. My job is to assist patients' own natural healing process along and intervene when they are in need. I absolutely love my medical practice and feel so humbly honored to serve my patient population. I am incredibly thankful for the opportunities I have had to practice medicine here and to be a part of such a dynamic community!
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
My passion outside of the amazing practice of medicine is clearly in the culinary world. I grew up in a bakery in the Catskill mountains of New York. My mother was a pastry chef and my father was a pharmacist. As children we were always working with our mom in the family business which allowed for us to develop customer service attributes but also fantastic skills at pastry art and food industry business. I am often experimenting with lots of artistic mediums in pastry art, which is consumed pretty quickly by our large family. With six young people and two adults under one roof, there is lots of food to be enjoyed, milestones to celebrate and sweets to eat! My heart will always lie first and foremost with my beautiful family, sweet and wonderful children and great husband who allow me to do all the things I cherish and love with them!
