I have always enjoyed helping others as a child. While doing clinical rotations as a Family Nurse Practitioner in school, I was drawn to educating, listening to, and advocating for women and their needs. I have always been a patient advocate, including during my hospital experience. Every patient is safe with me, and there is no question or concern that is too small or unimportant.
