Why did you become a physician/provider? I look forward to providing a higher level of care for patients, as well as expanding my horizons.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy? I always view patients as multifaceted, unique individuals. I believe it is important to listen to their concerns to help them feel at ease.

What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about? Pulmonary patients. This specialty is what I have done throughout my whole nursing career.

Why did you choose your specialty? I've always had a passion for pulmonology, and working with a pulmonologist gave me the opportunity to pursue it.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients? Evidence-based care.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day? Being able to make someone's day just a little better motivates me to continue with my work.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice? I truly believe in St. Luke's mission - to provide the care I want my loved ones to recieve.

Personal interests: I love outdoor activities such as Crossfit, exercising, reading, listening to podcasts and spending time with my family.

I have a long history working with pulmonary patients as a COVID nurse, as well as experience during clinical rotations with the pulmonology nurse practitioners at UnityPoint Health. I am passionate about working with patients in the hospital setting.
