    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is about providing compassionate care to all individuals by empowering patients through education and health promotion. I strive to be their best healthcare advocate in a way that is meaningful to my patients. I believe in making the patient feel listened to and for them to be involved in their treatment decisions for the person, family or community as a whole. I never felt called to any specialty, I care to be involved in compassionate care at any point in someone’s life.

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy interacting and meeting people. I like to be involved in my patients care in a meaningful way. I also love the “family” that is developed with your peers in healthcare. To me, there is no relationships quite like those that are developed on the frontlines of healthcare.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy traveling and camping with my family, spending time outdoors, reading, hiking, dinners and new experiences and activities.
