Education: University of Iowa
Healthcare has always been my calling. I’ve tried other things but I just always come back to healthcare. I’ve worked in a few different counseling settings including school counseling, emergency room, and drug and alcohol counseling. I really love the integrated healthcare model here at Mountain Park. We can focus on the whole person.
I really believe in the connection between the mind and body. Mental health has a major impact on physical health and vise versa. I want my patients to feel like they are in a safe, non-judgmental place when they are with me where they can talk about whatever they need to. I’m here to listen.
Self-care is so important. I enjoy taking walks, sewing, and reading. If I wasn’t working in healthcare I would stay home and take care of my granddaughter.
