Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I decided to pursue a career in medicine to help others.
I wanted to help others attain a higher level of health and wellness by providing information on prevention and education.
My goal is to model those behaviors and to share how to enjoy improved health everyday.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I started teaching exercise classes in 1981 to earn money to go to nursing school.
I have been a certified yoga instructor since 1985 and a certified Pilates instructor since 2000.
I recently became certified as a health coach with the National Society of Health Coaches.
My specialty certification is in Obesity and Weight Management, CSOWM
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
My spare time is spent with my family and enjoying the outdoors. I enjoy walking the dog and watching wildlife in my yard.
I teach yoga classes and Pilates classes, and do weight lifting.
