Bio

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:  I have had an evolving career from an RN to nurse therapist to a psychiatric NP to help those with serious mental illness.  Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner has been a great role for me because I enjoy working with those who cope with mental illness in the community. I have had an opportunity to treat a wide variety of individuals with psychiatric conditions in a community setting. 

What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me:  Individuals will have an opportunity to discuss psychiatric symptoms and available treatment approaches.  Treatment selection is a collaboration with the individual. 

What I do when I’m not seeing patients:  When not providing care I enjoy gardening, remodeling, travel and hiking.  I am working on sustainable living endeavors with my husband.
