My approach to care

My approach to care is based on the belief that healthcare is a human right and one that impacts all aspects of our lives. The privilege and honor to care for my patients is one that I do not take lightly.

Why I went into healthcare

I became a nurse practitioner to provide quality holistic care to underserved populations, both locally and globally. I love playing a supportive role in the pathway to health for my patients and their families.

Something you might not know about me

Something you might not know about me is that I love rock climbing, raising chickens, and adventuring in the great outdoors with my family.
