About Me

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

I always knew I wanted to go into the medical field after I joined my local ambulance corp at 16. After finding my love in nursing, I wanted to make a bigger difference for my patients and decided to go back to school.

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

I chose this specialty because I get to help a broad range of patients. I get to deal with the young and old as well as a wide variety of illnesses.

How do you connect with your patients?

Because of my nursing background, I take more time with my patients to connect. I like finding out about my patients life, family as well as their illness.

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

I recently moved to Orange County so I love exploring the area - finding new wineries, towns to tour and spending time with my little family.

What is your advice for your patients?

I always tell my patients you know your body best. If you feel like something is wrong, say something. We can only help if you tell us what is wrong.
