Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
As a young child, I was inspired by my mother to someday begin a career in healthcare. As I watched her care for elderly patients in our home during my childhood, I adored how she could be so compassionate, dedicated, and devoted to others who were not kin to her. She is my role model and I wanted to follow in her footsteps and help others in need. Shortly after high school, I started my career as a nursing assistant, then onto being a Registered Nurse, and now a Family Nurse Practitioner. I chose family medicine because it allows me to work with patients through all stages of life, from newborns to geriatrics.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I will listen to their concerns, work with them closely, and provide support to help them achieve their health care goals. I enjoy teaching my patients so they can better understand what’s going on with their body, and assisting them to be accountable for their own health. I have a background in Women’s Health and this remains an area of special interest. I truly love helping and serving the community.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy spending my free time with my husband, children, family, and close friends. My hobbies include cycling on nature trails, exercising, and reading.
