Why did you become a healthcare provider? I became a nurse practitioner because I loved being a nurse, but I wanted to care for patients at a higher level. As a family nurse practitioner, I have the opportunity to build relationships with my patients as I care for them throughout their lives. 
What qualities best describe the care you provide to your patients? I treat each patient as an individual and strive to treat them the same way I would treat my family.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day? Knowing every day, I have the ability to make a difference in someone's life.
What is the most important message you would like to share with your patients? As your healthcare provider, my goal is to be your partner in your health journey. I strive to provide high-quality care, while respecting your values and healthcare goals.
Are there any fun facts you would like to share? In the fall of 2022, my finance and I did the Manitou Incline in Colorado!
Personal interests: Spending time with family and friends, country music concerts, hiking and traveling
