About This ProviderPrint
Why did you become a provider?
I became a physician assistant because I was fascinate with medicine at an early age, and I wanted to learn how to heal people and make them feel their best. When considering a future career, I knew I wanted to be a lifelong learner and I wanted to interact with people, but I also knew I wanted a job that allowed me to spend time with family and friends. I'm excited that, as a physician assistant, I can work as an independent provider and also have a strong interpersonal relationship with my supervising physicians and clinic staff as well as my patients while providing the best care possible.
