Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I was led to work in heart failures because of my love of taking care for patients. People living with heart failure need a lot of support. Most of them are older with a lot of health conditions. It takes a team of dedicated health care providers working alongside the patient to be successful. When you are successful in helping patients, better self-manage their disease and they start to enjoy a better quality of life it is so rewarding and worth all the effort that is put into it.
What I want my patients to know about me:
My husband grew up in Blue Ridge Summit and went to school in Waynesboro PA. We met in 1993 at Walt Disney World in Orlando where we both worked. After 18 years living in Orlando it was time for a change so we moved back to Waynesboro to be closer to his family.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I am a breeder of Shiloh Shepherds and a member of the International Shiloh Shepherd alliance. I sit on the board and am currently acting treasurer. My husband and I also love to travel. He is from Finland and his family still owns land there so we try to go once a year.
