I’ve lived in many places growing up but Glendale has always been home to me. When I was younger I wanted to work in healthcare and be a Pediatrician. Although my career started in marketing and corporate communications, my volunteer work always drew me back to healthcare. I volunteered in nursing settings during high school and college, frequently working with nuns and parish ministry. Eventually I was drawn to elder care.
Today I enjoy serving adults and keeping them healthy. As a Nurse Practitioner at Mountain Park I love working with a diverse group of coworkers and patients. Together we are able to provide healthcare across multiple disciplines and work toward preventive health for all of our patients. At the end of the day, quality of life is important to me, and I strive to ensure all of my patients are healthy. My faith drives my work, and I pray every day that I can make a difference in someone’s life. It takes a village and fellowship to keep our community healthy.
I come from a multigenerational family with roots going back to Italy. I have a son and two dogs, and when I have time away from work I love to dance, cook, garden and do anything I can outdoors. I believe Mother Nature is important to our health, and the more natural the better.
