Career Influence

While pursuing my master’s degree, I worked as a registered nurse in a skilled nursing facility working with both acute and long-term care patients. I took a particular interest in pulmonary medicine, doing community outreach and education with families affected by asthma and chronic care management to those with COPD. I continued to practice my skills and education working in a primary care clinics, long-term care, and infectious disease settings.”

Practice Philosophy

“I believe in practicing patient-centered care as part of a dynamic team-based approach. In order to provide effective patient-centered care, treatment plans must be personally tailored to each individual so that they may achieve their healthcare goals and needs. I value being able to establish and develop a long-lasting relationship with my patients and look forward to engaging in a collaborative experience.”
