About Me

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

I have very early memories of wanting to become a medical professional.  My answer as a young child was always "doctor" and then evolved as I became aware of other avenues available in the field.  My decision to become a Physician Assistant is largely based on a family friend and role model who showed me the great impact on patient lives that he was able to achieve every day. 

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

Family Medicine and Urgent Care are both extremely challenging and extremely gratifying.  When a patient tells me during a visit that they feel like they have been heard and have received the best care they could hope for, I could not be happier. 

How do you connect with your patients?

Listening.  Sympathizing. Speaking in a way that each patient understands our common goals. 

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

I am a new mom so my current interests outside of the office including caring for my infant daughter!  My husband and I have taken her on hikes already! I also love to read novels, enjoy a glass of wine, and of course good company with family and friends. 

What is your advice for your patients?

If possible, I always try to speak to my patients about total mind and body wellness.  Sometimes, a quick fix is not the answer.
