Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
After obtaining a bachelor's degree in biology, I realized that a career in health care would allow me to combine my love for science and my passion for working with people.
What I want my patients to know about me:
My patient care philosophy is to include patients in their care and health management decisions. I work hard to be a good listener and to individualize patient care for each patient, since every patient has her own distinct set of needs.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I am not seeing patients, I am spending time with my family. My children are involved in several sports and activities, and we spend a lot of time supporting each other and cheering each other on at these events. I also enjoy gardening, plants, and photography.
