About Me

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

When I was younger, my mother moved in with my grandparents to help take care of them. I saw how much she and the home health aides and nurses did for them. I wanted to learn more and become a better advocate for not only my family but my community as well.

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

I not only want to share my knowledge and struggles with my patients about my healthy lifestyle journey but also help educate and encourage them on their own journey to a healthier lifestyle.

How do you connect with your patients?

I connect by being caring and empathetic. Each patient is unique and I am here to listen to them and their needs.

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

I enjoy working out at the gym, hiking, spending time with my family and friends, and exploring different areas in the Hudson Valley.

What is your advice for your patients?

Be your best advocate.
