About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

Working as an ER Tech in 2001 was when I realized I wanted a career in medicine. As an RN, I had a job on an oncology unit. That experience made me realize I wanted to go back to school to become a family nurse practitioner with a goal of promoting health maintenance.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

I love getting to know patients and their families. There is great value in having a primary care provider who knows and understands family and interpersonal dynamics in order to treat the whole patient.

How do you connect with your patients?

I think it is important to demonstrate active listening in order to connect by making eye contact and using reflective to clarify understanding. I also try to never place a computer between myself and my patients.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I like to remake old furniture which I paint in my garage. I also enjoy other arts and crafts. I write a personal blog to record family memories and stories.

What is your advice for your patients?

We are a team and I am here to help them find practical, manageable solutions to their problems or concerns.
