Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
As a child I loved playing with puzzles, and science was the one topic in school that excited me. I also grew up with a hard working night shift Labor and Delivery Nurse as a mom. When it came to deciding what I wanted to do as my life's vocation, I knew immediately that becoming a nurse was it. I went on to become a nurse practitioner because of my desire to do more in helping patients reach their health goals and solving those "what is it" puzzles of the body and mind.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am your partner. I want to provide you care that makes you healthier, that keeps your families stronger, and that allows you to feel a whole sense of health in your life daily. It may not always happen overnight, but together we will work to achieve these goals for you. Also, I am struggling, but actively trying, to improve my Spanish.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I love nature- kayaking, hiking, and walking my dog (a 10 year-old German Short-Haired Pointer). Listening to music is also an activity that feeds my soul: share your artists with me, I love to discover new things! I also cook regularly- it brings all my favorite people together! When I can, I travel as much as I can- in and out of the U.S. I would like to partake in missions in my new role as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
