I’ve always wanted to work in healthcare. I can’t think of a time when I wanted to do anything different. My passion is working with community health centers and I love the Integrated Healthcare model here at Mountain Park.
I think it’s important not just to check on patients’ physical health, but also their emotional, mental, spiritual, social, and financial wellbeing. Being healthy requires stability in all those areas. I believe that everyone knows what they need to take care of themselves and I’m just here to help my patients uncover that.
I focus a lot on self-care, not just for my patients, but for myself as well. If I’m unable to care for myself, I’m unable to care for others, and that applies to everyone.
