Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
My mother is a physician and was an amazing role model for me growing up. Seeing how much she enjoyed her profession, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine. After shadowing a physician assistant (PA) while I was in college, I felt this was my true calling. After college, I attended physician assistant school at Arcadia University in Glenside, PA. This was certainly challenging, but I am extremely happy with my career choice and proud to be a PA.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I want my patients to know that I will take the time to listen to them and see their perspective. I understand that coming to a medical office or the hospital can be a frightening time for patients and their families. I will try work with patients to formulate a plan for their continued health and well-being.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
In my spare time, I enjoy running and horseback riding. My husband and I have a dog, Riley, and a cat, Ellie. We enjoy taking Riley on daily walks and on adventures to the beach, when possible.
