Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is to treat you with the same quality of care, compassion and respect I would want for my own family. My goal is to work collaboratively to make you feel included in medical decision-making and in directing your care.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because of my love for learning. As a physician assistant (PA), I will be a lifelong learner not only in the field of medicine, but also in people. I have the unique opportunity to learn the best ways to connect with you and your family, to advocate compassionately for your best interests, and to make the sometimes scary world of medicine more manageable and understandable for you and your loved ones.

Community involvement

During my time as a student in the PA program at DeSales University, I was a volunteer at the DeSales Free Clinic, which provided free health care evaluations and maintenance to the homeless men of the Allentown Rescue Mission. I was able to work alongside other students as well as volunteer preceptors to expand my medical knowledge and provide quality care. I hope to continue to give back to the community in similar ways during my career as a PA.

Personal interests

In my free time, I enjoy trying new recipes in the kitchen, reading a good book, spending time with my family, and making people roll their eyes at so-terrible-they're-good puns.
