    Biography

    What I Do

    My philosophy of care is to work with patients to set and meet mutual goals that provide the best quality of life. As a nurse in our local hospital, I saw many people who were sick. I realized that sometimes illness can be prevented through education and chronic disease management. That led me to pursue a family nurse practitioner degree. I hope to see patients in the clinic while they are still healthy and work with them to prevent or slow disease progression.

    Why I Love My Work

    I like seeing familiar faces as I care for our community. I enjoy seeing the whole family from the young children to the great-grandparents.

    Getting to Know Me

    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family in Ramsey Park, reading, and baking.
