I went into PA school with dreams of building relationships and connections with patients, to work collaboratively on improving their health by empowering them through education and mutual respect.

Over the years since graduation, I have worked in trauma, general surgery, family medicine and for the last 3 years in urgent care. I have learned much from each job and value the time I spent in each one growing and refining my knowledge, skills, compassion and passion for individualized health care.

As a provider, I value my patient’s needs and want to make sure they feel validated in their concerns and feel value in the time I have spent caring for them. I believe patients want to feel heard and their opinions valued. They want to be part of the conversation and guided through their concerns. I strongly believe that change can only take effect when a patient understands their diagnosis and is invested in the treatment plan. I am passionate about empowering patients to meet their health care goals and needs through patient education, collaborative care and shared decision-making.

I am open-minded, flexible, and I strive to work with others and treat people as I would want to be treated. I am honest and bold, yet remain humble—willing to acknowledge my weaknesses and strive to grow and learn from every experience. I believe in doing the right thing no matter what. Integrity and evidence-based medicine are fundamentally important to me.

I look forward to joining an organization that encourages providers and patients to work together toward optimal health.

When not working, I can be found with my family. They are my greatest adventure, and I love spending as much time as possible with them. It is such an amazing honor and incredible experience to watch my daughter grow and learn about the world around her.

I grew up overseas in Rome, Italy. I am fluent in several languages and embrace learning about and sharing in other cultures. I hope to impart the importance of cultural diversity, acceptance and the joy of not only teaching others, but more importantly learning from those around us in our daily lives. We love to dance, travel, hike, camp, cook, explore and read together as a family.
