What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I wanted to be a nurse from when I was very young. I wanted to help people and found medicine fascinating.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I chose hospitalist medicine after a clinical rotation and found it to always be challenging with varied patients and new learning experiences.
How do you connect with your patients?
I try to connect through family-patients typically love to talk about their children and/or grandchildren. They usually open up about health concerns when they feel a connection with the provider.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I like biking, hiking, and reading.
What is your advice for your patients?
Take care of your body so it can take care of you!
