Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
My maternal grandmother and mother were nurses, and I learned early on in life that caring for anyone and everyone was an effortless duty. We camped a lot when I was young, and I was known as the "little nurse on duty" with my fabricated pink Barbie case transformed into a first aid kit, equipped to cure any bumps or bruises. After 18+ years as a staff RN working for hospitals, managed care organizations and home care, I decided to advance my nursing knowledge and became a CRNP with a focus on adult and geriatric patients.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I care about you! I want every patient and their family to know that with mutual respect and autonomy, I will do anything I can to provide the best care in order to better or maintain your life. I describe myself as a caring, compassionate, and down-to-earth lady.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Most important to me, I love living each day with awe and enthusiasm. I try not to focus on yesterday and tomorrow, but living in the day and appreciating everyone and everything around me is invaluable. I enjoy the outdoors and discovering new locations, treasures, and people. I love my four-legged friends at home, which include two small dogs and three cats. My family is super important to me, so spending any time when we’re all together is priceless.
