Why did you become a provider? I became a provider because I loved my role as a nurse, and I wanted the opportunity to play a more active and independent role in my patients' healthcare. Becoming a provider has enabled me to share my knowledge and expertise to not only help navigate what can be an intimidating healthcare system but also be more of an advocate for patients and their families. I have seen the impact one person can have in changing someone's life, and I want to offer that for my patients.

Most important thing to know about you: At the end of the day, I want to know I have made a difference in someone’s life. Whether that be helping a patient better understand the purpose of a medication or calming their fears. My goal is to provide the dignity and respect everyone deserves.
What do you believe is an ideal provider/patient relationship: A relationship that focuses on the patients goals and expectations. The key to being a good provider is trust. My primary goal is to listen to patients so I can help them achieve their healthcare goals. My role is to ensure patients have the knowledge and resources to make informed decisions about their healthcare and feel supported in those decisions.
What do you like to do in your free time: As a family, we enjoy the outdoors, camping, hiking and canoeing.
