About Me

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

I had always wanted to be a Dr since I was young but did not think I could handle the education.  In 2008 after working as a live entertainment consultant for approx 30 years, I decided I could handle the education and returned to school.  As I was approx 45 years old when I returned to school, I choose to become a RN and then nurse practitioner rather than MD.  This will be my first NP position.

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

I find it particularly rewarding to help a person who is in distress/does not feel well or injured on their path to recovery.  I choose nursing because of the intimate interaction with patients and learning to care for a patient hands on

How do you connect with your patients?

Calm talking and listening, hands-on touch.

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

Running, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, hiking/camping, white water rafting, working on my house.

What is your advice for your patients?

I am currently working as a RN - Try to follow medical instructions for their care, take all medicines as prescribed, no changes without checking with their provider, avoid/quit smoking, signs and symptoms of MI & stroke.
