About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

My grandfather was a country doctor who made house calls, let patients pay with baked goods instead of money, and always treated patients with kindness and compassion. The impact he made on the community was evident but immeasurable. My aunts, uncle, and mother all worked in healthcare and I always knew I wanted to follow in their footsteps and carry on the family tradition.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I grew up in central Pennsylvania and want to see it's citizens be the best and healthiest that they can be! I'm committed to treating each patient with respect and with the best of my ability.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I'm not working, I'm often found with a cup of tea in one hand, a book in the other, and my cat at my feet. I love getting together with friends to play video or board games, explore used book shops, or try out new restaurants.
