Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:
I have known since the time I was very young that I wanted to pursue medicine. Growing up, I felt a strong sense of satisfaction when I was able to take care of my younger siblings when they were sick, or nurse a scrawny little kitten back to health. I knew early on that it was my purpose in life to help bring health and healing to others. As a Lancaster County native, I consider it a privilege to serve my own community, and surrounding communities, as a medical provider!
What I want my patients to know about me:
I love women's health! My first nursing job was a labor and delivery nurse. After several years in labor and delivery, I transferred into the operating room and became a circulating nurse where I spent many days helping with gynecological surgeries. With the encouragement of friends, family, and co-workers, I eventually went back to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. My nursing background perfectly prepared me for my career with WellSpan OB/GYN in Lebanon! As your nurse practitioner, I will be your biggest advocate and strongest ally in your journey to better health. I want you to know that you will not be alone in whatever you may be going through. I will approach your health in a holistic and evidence-based manner so all of your health needs are being treated the best way we know how. Your goals are my goals, too!
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I'm not seeing patients, you can find me running around on a soccer field, grabbing coffee at a local coffee shop, spending time with my friends, or hanging out with my husband and Golden Retriever!
