Patient care is very important to me. I take care of patients like I would want my family and myself to be treated. I value the patient-to-provider relationship, and I always make sure I explain to the patient their diagnoses and treatment plan to the best of my ability. I believe this allows the patient to feel more comfortable and understand the acute situation they are going through. I also value a multi-disciplinary health care approach; working and collaborating with physicians, nursing staff, physical therapists, social workers, and more. I feel working together creates a better overall experience for the patient and a better medical outcome.
I grew up in Long Island, New York with my mother, father and younger sister. I am very close with my immediate family as well as my extended family, including my 21 cousins. I played sports my entire life and played college soccer at Sacred Heart University. Sports have played a big role in my life, and I continue to stay active with biking, hiking, running and swimming. I received my professional degree in Physician Assistant Studies and started my career as a Physician Assistant in the trauma department in a Long Island Hospital. Recently I have discovered my love for dogs and have a Mini Goldendoodle. Moving to Colorado has always been a dream of mine to explore the outdoors and to continue my professional career.
