A lot of my close family members have type 1 diabetes, so I became very interested in diabetes education at a young age. I went to nursing school because I wanted to help people and educate them on how to take care of themselves. I really like the mission statement here at Mountain Park and feel like I should have been here my whole career.
I think healthcare is a partnership and I’m here to teach my patients everything I know and guide them to the healthy life they want. The first step in that journey is really listening to my patients so we can not only take care of the main problem, but also any underlying issues as well. That’s the great thing about being here at Mountain Park. We have a whole Care Team looking at every aspect of patient care from physical health to mental and nutritional as well.
I enjoy spending time with my family. My kids are all grown now, and I have some grandkids who my husband and I try to see regularly. We also enjoy being outdoors hiking and running.
