I am a certified nurse practitioner specializing in family medicine. I have professional interests in women's health, alternative medicine and mental health.
I’m passionate about: conservation, the environment and animals. I want the world to be a better place so that future generations can enjoy it as much as I have.
I became a provider because: I always knew I wanted to work with people and I spent a lot of time babysitting during my youth. After volunteering at the Children’s Hospital for a couple summers, I knew I wanted to be involved in health care. Being a nurse practitioner is the best of both worlds: Health care and education.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: individualizing care. Every patient is different, and finding a plan that can work for them and their life, can be a fun exercise in problem solving and creativity.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be: a barista which was a job I held in high school and college. I loved the interactions with people, the smell of coffee, and the sounds of grinding beans and frothing milk.
Something I have learned from my patients is: that everyone is doing the best that they can with what they have been given. I provide a lot of education to my patients, but they often end up teaching me something too.
My personal health goal is: learning to play tennis well.
My personal health challenge is: consistency. I enjoy exercising and cooking healthy meals, but have difficulty doing them long-term. I've found that cooking several meals on Sundays and eating them throughout the week, opens more time for exercise and enjoying life.
