Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: I chose to become a nurse practitioner because I enjoy interacting with people and I wanted to help make an impact within our community.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: Patients should expect to have an open and honest conversation about their health care and feel supported. I try to maximize my time spent with my patients so they feel comfortable and are able to be part of the planning process for their health care.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients: I enjoy spending most of my free time with my family. I also enjoy spending time outside, reading and traveling.
