Practice philosophy: Regardless of the burden, everything feels lighter and more bearable when someone holds space for you to talk about it.
What are you passionate about and why? Health care is a human right. Everyone deserves to be carefully listened to and treated with kindness and respect.
If you weren't a health care provider, what would you be? Public Health
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? When we are intentional about caring for our emotional and physical health, good things happen. I enjoy watching these good things happen for my patients. It is a gift to be in service of others.
What is something you have learned from your patients? The patients I am privileged to walk alongside have taught me everything I know about courage, fortitude, and the fearless tenacity of the human spirit.
What is your personal health goal? Sleep, water, movement, sunscreen, good food, friends, and family!
