Philosophy of care

Helping you and your family define priorities for disease and symptom management is essential to developing a care plan honoring those wishes. For patients with chronic and progressive illnesses, addressing symptoms in a holistic manner with a team approach can improve quality of life. As a member of a team of professionals helping people live their lives to the fullest despite a chronic illness, I can partner with you and your family to meet that outcome.

Why I entered medicine

From age 7, as my father’s heart disease worsened, I knew I wanted to be a nurse. My path has covered various areas of nursing, including maternity/labor and delivery while serving as an RN in the U.S. Army, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, and eventually palliative/hospice care as a nurse practitioner. At each step, my passion grew for helping those with chronic and progressive illnesses define and achieve their goals.

Community involvement

I started my nursing career on a maternity unit, caring for children entering foster care. Based on that experience, my husband and I trained to become foster parents and have adopted three of our four foster children.

Personal interests

Outside of my career, I enjoy reading books from all genres. I am an avid knitter and enjoy finding local yarn shops to discover a new yarn for my next project.
