I’ve enjoyed a lengthy career with much time spent doing hospice work and detours through geriatrics, primary care, oncology and I’ve even taught high schoolers applied medical sciences.


I became interested in pursuing a career in the health care field after my first encounter with a nurse practitioner while an undergraduate. This was the first time I had ever felt so thoroughly cared for as a whole person. I thought to myself – now that’s a cool job!

My interests/hobbies: Travel, cooking, reading, writing – ideally all at once! I may also be frequently found hiking trails around my house with my husband, 2 kids and one rotten dog in tow (but at least he is cute).
