What is your practice philosophy? Patients need to find the motivation from within to maintain health. Promoting lifestyles, but compassionate, validating care and accurate, understandable education can be key to finding that motivation.
What are you passionate about? And why? Optimizing quality of life as people’s bodies, minds, and spirits age at different rates.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I discovered the special honor I could have partnering with patients in their most vulnerable moments while in high school. I have been determined to support people through chronic illness and aging ever since.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Navigating difficult conversations with patients’ loved ones and facilitating understanding among everyone invested in my patients’ health.
What is the best thing you’ve done for your health or the best health advice you’ve received?Accepting that every day brings its own unexpected challenges and I am never going to be perfect. But every minute of physical activity counts. I should never feel guilty for time spent doing what I love. Every good choice promotes a stronger healthy lifestyle.
What are you most proud of? Maintaining my passions outside of medicine and being a present and supportive friend.
