Since childhood, I have been fascinated with health and the human body, and becoming a Nurse Practitioner in the medical field allowed me to have a more involved and personal relationship with patients. I love caring for women of all ages and stages in life. My main focus is to listen carefully to patients’ concerns and needs, so I can address their issues fully and efficiently. Educating my patients is important, and giving compassionate care, while providing evidence-based medical care, is always my goal.
