If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: Children’s librarian. I love reading—especially literature written for children. Being a librarian would allow me to be a part of the wonder, joy, and excitement that is part of not only learning to read, but the continuing journey of finding and getting lost in great books.
Something I have learned from my patients is: Every single one of us wants to be seen, heard, and acknowledged as individuals. As a healthcare provider it is essential to tailor care to the needs and values of each individual.
My personal health goal is: I’m always trying to improve my sleep habits. The benefit of better (and, at times, more) sleep helps me walk into my day fully recharged and ready to tackle any challenges that come up.
The best health advice I've received is: caring for yourself should be your first priority. Feeling better equips you to care for others more effectively.
What are you most proud of? My family. Being a parent is simultaneously the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life. It has taught me to be patient, empathetic, and more adventurous.
