About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

There is a time and place for less-is-more and accepting the help of your doctor. I want to be there for my patients and help them navigate all the treatment options so they can be educated medically and lead the best possible quality of life.

What I want my patients to know about me:

Laughter is the best medicine, but I will never sugar-coat things and I am going to be honest with you about what I think. I am always willing to provide education and I want my patients to feel like they can come to me with questions.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am your typical "foodie" and enjoy finding hidden food gems everywhere I go. My love of food is the main thing motivating me to keep on top of my fitness, but I am glad to be meeting the aerobic exercise recommendations by the CDC, USPSTF, and AAFP. I also love baking and cooking, so much so that I am (unsuccessfully) trying to become a pastry chef in my spare time. Lastly, I'm not afraid to express my love of fashion and I believe that one can still be professional and fashion-forward.
