    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is that patient and family-centered care is essential. Every patient’s treatment plan should be uniquely tailored to them. I encourage patients to be active decision makers in their healthcare needs by educating and supporting them with evidence-based practice. I believe in healing the whole body versus just a disease to promote overall wellness. My special clinical interests include pediatrics, rural healthcare, preventative healthcare, women’s health and chronic disease management.

    Why I Love My Work
    I love the people the most in my job. I enjoy hearing my patients' stories and getting to know them! I love talking about what I have learned in medicine in applying it to each unique patient that I take care of. That is why I went into medicine, my compassion and desire to help others.

    Getting to Know Me
    I worked as a registered nurse at an urban pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) for many years. My patients there inspired me every day to do better and never stop searching for answers. I loved my time in the PICU but because I grew up on a farm, my heart has always been with rural communities. My passion for rural healthcare motivated me to become a nurse practitioner.

    Outside of work, I love to spend time with my husband and three children. In the summer you will find me on the lake paddleboarding or rocking in a hammock cuddled with a good book. I also love to run and jam out to music of all types.
