My approach to care

My approach to care is to work in collaboration with a patient and their care team at OLE Health to improve their symptoms and quality of life.

Why I went into healthcare

I became a Social Worker because I have always had a passion for helping others, particularly for those in marginalized communities/groups. I want to leave the world in a better place than I found it.

Something you might not know about me

I love movies, traveling, baking, and spending time with loved ones.
