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 growing up, I remember always wanting to help others every time an occasion had presented itself. Becoming a health care provider allows me to help others more specially.

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

As a family Nurse Practitioner, I love the fact that I can provide health care services that revolve across the life span. I choose to become a Family Nurse Practitioner because I didn't want to narrow my scope of practice to a specialty.

How do you connect with your patients?

 Giving my patients their devoted attention when they are expressing themselves is important to me. Active listening, showing empathy, and acknowledging their concerns are imperative ways to connect with patients.

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

I love reading, biking, and I enjoy traveling.

What is your advice for your patients?

 I encourage my patients to practice healthy behavior such as physical activities, and I promote healthy eating habits.
