About This ProviderPrint

Why did you become a provider?

As a child, I wore my Fisher-Price stethoscope everywhere. I gave my dolls tender loving care; taking their temperatures, applying bandages, and giving them medicine. As I grew up, this innate desire to care for others, in addition to my interest in the human body, health, and wellness, led me on the path to become a Registered Nurse. My love for learning and empowering patients with knowledge fueled my passion to expand my scope of practice as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?

I believe in a holistic approach (focusing on body, mind, and spirit) and utilizing a variety of conventional and alternative therapies to alleviate disease and promote wellness in partnership with patients.

What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about wellness promotion/disease prevention for women across the lifespan.

Why did you choose your specialty?

I am dual-certified as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and a Family Nurse Practitioner. I enjoy the wide scope of practice these two certifications provide! I appreciate the opportunity to provide specialized women's health care as well as generalized primary care.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?

Enthusiastic, holistic, collaborative, and evidence-based.

Being a healthcare provider, what motivates you each day?

Empowering patients with knowledge and assisting them to achieve their healthcare goals.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?

I am dedicated to building collaborative, long-term relationships with my patients. I want each and every one of my patients to be successful in achieving their healthcare goals. We will work together as a team to develop an individualized plan for such success.
