About Me

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

Working as a registered nurse, I had an increased interest in advancing my career and providing care to patients at a different level. 

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

I love that I have the autonomy to care and treat my patients.  I chose FNP so I can see a broad range of patients. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I connect by listening, giving them the time they need to address their concerns. 

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

I enjoy reading and working out. 

What is your advice for your patients?

I advise patients that maintaining a healthy lifestyle will benefit themselves and their family.
