When my husband started having some health problems, I really became interested in medicine. I decided to pursue my nursing degree and then continued on to become a nurse practitioner. Prior to that, I worked in human resources.
I enjoy working at Mountain Park because of the integrated care mode. With registered dietitians and behavioral health consultants, our patients can get their whole body and mind treated.
I really try to meet my patients where they are because everyone needs to accomplish different goals and sometimes obstacles stand in the way that prevent people from getting the help they need. I’ve been told that I’m approachable and patients tend to get comfortable with me pretty quickly because I tell them that I am always there for them.
When I’m not at work, I spend a lot of time with my husband and two kids.
