When I was little, growing up in Le Roy, Illinois, I wanted to be on Broadway! But then I learned that I couldn’t sing, act or dance, so that ended that. In high school, I realized the power of good nutrition and a healthy relationship with food, so I knew it was a good opportunity for me to help others.

I love the integrated model at Mountain Park and how nutrition is emphasized as a critical part of patient care. Outside of work I enjoy music, baking, crafting, going to concerts, traveling and being outside with my dog Griffin. I moved to Arizona from Chicago in 2014 and I love the winters!
