Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I have always had a passion for caring for others and a strong interest in science/biology.
Nursing became my calling as I worked as a nursing assistant, and I took my first position as a registered nurse in obstetrics/labor and delivery in 2009.
Unfortunately during my obstetrical nursing career, my husband and I lost 2 of our own children. During that difficult time, I made the decision to continue my education to become a women's health NP. I now have the privilege of promoting the health care of women across the lifespan. This has been one of the most rewarding decisions of my life.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am a very motivated person, and I always strive to do the best job possible. I strive to make my clients feel comfortable and well cared for, both physically and emotionally.
I enjoy my work and try to convey this on a daily basis.
I do my best to be a good listener and a clear communicator so we have the best and clearest plan possible.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I have one son and a husband who occupy much of my time when I am not in the office.
We have one dog, Oliver, who is mostly lazy, but still very fun.
I absolutely love to crochet in my spare time (my grandmother taught me when I was 10 years old); I have found this to be a therapeutic AND productive activity!
