Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Starting in high school, I was fascinated by the study of biology (especially anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and more) and wanted to help people, so medicine was a natural fit. I especially wanted to help sick children. Being able to see a sick child, figure out what is wrong with him or her, and be able to support him or her and the family through the illness and help to get them better, is so rewarding. It NEVER gets old! I get to be a problem solver, a teacher, a healer and a cheerleader all in one. What could be better?
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am a follower of Jesus Christ. What this means is I know God loves me, and also loves EVERY person that I interact with. I know that every child that I care for is fearfully and wonderfully made, and is deserving of the best possible care I can give. Every parent is deserving of my utmost respect and care. I seek to be excellent in all that I do to honor God.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I am a mom of two amazing school-aged daughter, and I love to spend time with them and my husband.
I love to read, especially Christian historical fiction.
I work out daily. I do at home workouts with well-rounded programs that include cardio, resistance and stretching.
I mainly eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet, and I love cooking for my family.
