Physician Profile

About

I aspired to become a nurse practitioner while working as a critical care nurse in the Intensive Care Unit. I saw first-hand how important routine outpatient care and education is to overall health and well-being, and I wanted to make an impact in that arena. My mother influenced my decision in becoming a nurse. I once “nursed” her through an illness, and she commented that perhaps this was my calling. I especially enjoy meeting and talking with my patients while solving their problems with their sleep issues. Sleep is as important as breathing, and it is satisfying to help those patients who have issues. I have been married to my best friend and high school sweetheart for over 10 years. We have two spoiled fur-children that we love dearly. All of our extended family live in this area, and it allows us to have large family gatherings that we really enjoy. While not working, you will catch me helping my husband remodel our 67-year old house, kayaking, hiking, taking a yoga class or enjoying the sunshine.
