Philosophy of care
Patient care is about team work. The ER can be a scary and intimidating place. It is our job as physicians to work together with staff, other physicians and consultants, to make each and every patient feel comfortable and deliver the best care possible in a timely fashion.
Why I entered medicine
I wanted to be a doctor since I was a child. I wanted to grow up to be a person who had the skills and knowledge to help anyone medically in any situation. I was drawn to emergency medicine for that very reason.
I am a very outdoorsy and adventurous person. I love hiking, running, tennis, kayaking, taking long walks with my baby, working out, and ice skating.
I also am a total foodie and perhaps a small wine snob. I enjoy anything from food trucks to fancy dining, as long as it is delicious. I also love to cook. I actually look forward to family and friend gatherings because I have an excuse to cook several different dishes. I try to also do an annual biking trip through the Napa and Sonoma wine country in California!
