Why did you become a physician/provider?
I became a medical provider because I felt a call to make a difference in others lives.  Before becoming a provider, I worked as a critical care nurse. While I enjoyed this, I wanted to advance my education in order to have a greater understanding of the complexities of managing illness in all ages. 
What is your medical philosophy? 
I am committed to providing the utmost quality of care for each patient, taking into consideration his or her individual physical, social, and mental health needs. 
What type of care are you most passionate about? 
I enjoy caring for all patients, but I really enjoy caring for children. I also enjoy working with patients with mental health concerns.
Why did you choose your specialty? 
I chose family medicine because I want to care for people throughout their whole lifespan and to build trusting provider-patient relationships with my patients. Being a family nurse practitioner allows me to provide care through a holistic approach. 
What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients? 
Compassionate, patient advocate, straight-forward, and personable. 
What motivates you each day?
Knowing that I am helping people each day whether it be with preventive care or managing chronic conditions. 
What is the most important things patients should know about your practice?
I will strive to provide the best care possible to each of my patients through a holistic approach.
