Personal Interests
I enjoy hiking, kayaking, playing games, and spending time with my family.

Why did you become a physician/provider?
I became a Nurse Practitioner because I enjoy caring for people and educating them about their health.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?
I believe that every patient should be treated with dignity and respect no matter what their situation is. Patient's should feel safe to confide in their providers and receive non-judgmental care. I also believe that medical decisions should be made as a team between the patient and the provider.

What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about Women's Health.

Why did you choose your specialty?
Since nursing school I have always known I wanted to specialize in Women's Health. Working in an OB unit as a nurse confirmed my passion in caring for women. I became a WHNP-BC because I love educating and empowering women about their health so they have the knowledge they need to make the right health choices for themselves.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?
I provide compassionate, safe, and non-judgmental care to all of my patients.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
My patients motivate me every day. I want to be here to help care for them. Seeing my patients meet their healthcare goals makes me feel like what I do makes a difference.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
I take the time to listen to my patients and their concerns. Here at Allen Women's Health, we care greatly about our patients and want them to have the best experience possible.
