Meet your Provider
What led you to become a provider or choose your focus of medicine?
I always loved and had an interest in medicine. During high school, I was hospitalized, and during that hospitalization, I realized what a difference nurses make in peoples’ lives and how rewarding it is to help others. I then decided to get my nursing degree after high school. After being a nurse for eight years, I decided to continue my nursing education and become a family nurse practitioner.
What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
The most rewarding aspect of this career is to be able to help other people by providing care in time of illness. I also find preventative care rewarding because it allows me to help ensure a better quality of life for my patients.
What is something about you that only your patients would know?
I wouldn’t say there is anything about me that only my patients would know. I would say that anyone who knows me knows that I am very passionate about being a health care provider and ensuring that my patients feel welcome, comfortable, and receive health care that will provide them with a better quality of life.
How would a patient describe you?
Patients would describe me as an advocate, compassionate, thoughtful, supportive and competent.
What’s your proudest moment as a provider?
There are several proud moments I have encountered as a health care provider. Each interaction with a patient has the potential to make a difference in their lives which is always a proud moment.
In your opinion, what’s the most important factor in a provider-patient relationship?
There are so many factors that are important in a doctor-patient relationship. My top factor is trust which for me, is established by honesty, along with confidentially, safety and open communication.
What can a patient expect when they have you as a provider?
My patients can expect what I want from a health care provider; that is to have a friendly and comfortable environment where their individual health care needs are adequately addressed. Additionally, they can expect someone who will be their advocate, listen to them and provide compassionate, quality care.
What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
The most encouraging thing about my work is making a difference in someone’s life and being able to provide them with a better quality of life while establishing a strong doctor-patient relationship.
What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
To give compassionate and quality care specific to each patient as if they were my own family is my top priority. It is also important for me to establish a trusting and open relationship with every patient by listening and providing care and education specific to that individual.
Describe one of the top ways you ensure each patient receives the quality, personal health care he/she deserves.
To me, quality health care starts with compassionate, active listening, thorough assessments, and care that focuses on the patient as an individual. These are important qualities to help build a strong trusting doctor-patient relationship that ensures each patient is receiving the quality and personal health care for their individual needs.
Is there anything more or extra you would like prospective patients to know about you?
I am comfortable and enjoy caring for patients of all ages, from newborns to the geriatric population.
Do you have any specific medical interests?
I find all areas of medicine to be interesting, as there are always advancements in medicine. My goal is to stay up-to-date on these changes to ensure my patients receive quality, personal health care.
