About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I worked as a RN for 15 years prior to deciding to go back to school for a masters in science in family practice, nurse practitioner program. My concentration was cardiology, working with post-operative OHS patients, MI, CHF patients. I worked in preventive cardiology Coumadin clinic many years as well. My decision to go back to school was patient-driven. I had many patients feeling frustrated, not understanding why they were taking medicine and feeling their physicians were not listening to them. I felt I could listen and take the time to educate about illness and medications.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I'm not seeing patients, I am busy with my children. My son is active in sports, and my daughter is active in dance and theater. Our one dog and three cats also keep me very busy—cleaning my house. I do a lot of cooking on the weekends with my family. We cook together to provide healthy, fun meals, easy to warm up during our busy week. I am a Philadelphia sports fan and spending time watching Eagles, attending Villanova basketball games and Phillies baseball games. Go Phillies!
