    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is to provide personalized patient care to guarantee that all needs are met while ensuring that my patients are comfortable and open with me. This will help them to be involved in the decision-making process. I make sure to discuss preventive care and routine screenings with my patients. This way they are directly involved in their care and have the information and resources they need to make informed decisions regarding their health. I love the variety that comes with all aspects of family medicine. I have a special clinical interest in women’s health, mental health and human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV).

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy the interactions with patients and working closely with the nursing team and other clinic staff on a daily basis. In general, I enjoy interacting with new people daily and helping in any way that I can.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, my dog Willow, listening to country music and going to state fairs. I also enjoy volunteering. I am grateful for the opportunity I had to organize and host Relay for Life events through the American Cancer Society for four years while in college.
