While working on the front lines of health care as a patient services representative, I was able to see the impact of the entire healthcare team on the overall patient experience, and I knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s live and health on a daily basis. Being a Nurse Practitioner combines my nursing passion and expertise with advanced practice knowledge to be able to deliver individualized, high-quality, evidence-based care. I believe in a holistic, collaborative approach that includes education, support, and advocacy for patients and their families, while promoting optimal health and wellness.
