- Family medicine
- Health maintenance goals
- Virtual visits
I am a certified nurse practitioner with professional interests in health maintenance goals, cardiology and diabetes. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
I am passionate about: ensuring that my patients understand their medical diagnosis. I find that knowledge is the key to a patient feeling empowered to ask the right questions and be involved in medical decision making as we work toward collaborative health maintenance goals.
I became a provider because: I wanted a profession that allowed me to utilize my strengths of caring and connection to restore and promote health. I chose family medicine as it allows me to work with a wide variety of ages and various health conditions while partnering with patients to help them see their own strengths to motivate change, and be the healthiest version of self.
My personal health goal: not all that much different than my patients. I want to make healthier food choices, I want to drink less caffeine, and I want to exercise more. If you come and see me, ask how well I am sticking to my goal!
The best thing I have done for my health is: engaging in a regular exercise routine. Be it a 30 minute video at home, yoga at the local gym, a bike ride, or training for a distance race, having a routine and a plan helps me to obtain optimal physical and psychological wellness.
I am most proud of: my three children. Their character, beauty, strength and perspective has taught me what it means to love and to embrace life. As a mother who works full-time, I am proud of the way in which we are intentional about the way we live our lives and spend time together.
