Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Since I was a child, I knew I wanted to work in a field where I could help people. I always had an interest in science and medicine. Working as a physician assistant (PA) allowed me to combine these interests in helping people to learn about and improve their health.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I strive to work with my patients on the well-being of the whole person, to improve overall health and quality of life.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy spending time with family and friends for adventures big and small. I like walking and hiking with my husband and dog, cooking and trying new recipes, traveling and reading a good book.
