What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
As a young person, my cousin Chris had Leukemia. We were very close and I attended most of his treatments and care. That experience guided me toward nursing and ultimately a Nurse Practitioner.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I enjoy the variety of cardiology as well as the often fast-paced care that is required.
How do you connect with your patients?
I sit with them and take my time. I often ask about their family or work and ask if there is anything specific I may do for them while under my care.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I exercise often, enjoy yoga, I love travel and vacation!!
What is your advice for your patients?
I ask them to participate in their care, and set attainable goals toward or to improve their healthy lifestyle.
