I really enjoy the “mystery” aspect of emergency medicine and urgent care. For the most part, the patient does not present with a known diagnosis, and the provider has to piece together history and exam to arrive at the likely diagnosis. That being said, sometimes the diagnosis is not clear, and I enjoy educating the patient about the other “differential diagnoses” and providing “return precautions.” The opportunity to be able to provide instant patient satisfaction, like in the case of reducing a dislocated shoulder or suturing a complex laceration, is also very satisfying to me (and the patient).

I also remind myself every day that I am truly privileged to be allowed into very vulnerable aspects of a patient’s life. From supporting a woman through a miscarriage to delivering diagnoses of cancer, I have been allowed to share in very personal aspects of people’s lives. I believe that reminding myself of this every day helps prevent burnout.

I have 2 wonderful grown children! I have a wonderful husband with whom I ski, mountain bike, hike, camp, dive, garden, cook and travel the world.
