What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
Working for a group home for mentally challenged adults providing direct care, a counselor lead me on the path to PA school.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
PA's in urgent care medicine get to provide more acute care from pediatrics to geriatrics with potential for multi-specialty problems: which allows us to stay up-to-date in many areas of medicine, allowing for comprehensive patient care.
How do you connect with your patients?
Careful listening and trying to treat each one as if they are one of my own family members.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
Outdoor activities. I love walking my dog and exploring new trails. Any activities spent with my family.
What is your advice for your patients?
Knowledge is power. Never be afraid to ask questions.
