Treating my patients with respect and dignity is primary for me. I am direct with what I say and will work with you, as long as you are also willing to help yourself and do the work.
Although I am originally from New Mexico, I spent several years in the Seattle, WA area, which I love. Like many people I have been married twice. My first marriage ended in divorce and my second marriage ended when my husband died. I have had a child with significant disabilities which taught me a lot about our disabilities system. My daughter is happily married and my current family at home is my 3-year-old dog. When I’m not working I love being outside, walking or just enjoying our beautiful scenery.
