As a pediatric nurse practitioner for more than 15 years, I enjoy seeing patients from diverse backgrounds and hope that all families find comfort in the care I provide.
I work in Adolescent Primary Care, where caring for adolescents is a wonderful opportunity to reach and teach those close to adulthood about health promotion and goal attainment. The work I do is both a gift and a blessing. Supporting adolescents at a time of tremendous change is game-changing for everyone involved.
Adolescents and young adults require a special approach as they start making their own health decisions while still having parents involved in their care. I want my patients to know they can discuss sensitive topics, such as vaping, substance abuse, obesity and sexual health during our confidential appointments. Helping adolescents see their potential is very rewarding to me.
In my free time, I like to be with my family, travel and shop.
