My philosophy of care centers around communication and building trusting relationships with patients and their families. This approach includes listening to peoples’ stories, collaborating with the healthcare team, and tailoring treatment plans to meet individual needs. I prioritize health promotion and disease prevention. I am also passionate about patient education and quality metrics.
I love wellness and the outdoors. During my free time, I enjoy hiking and backpacking with my husband and rescue dog, Piper. I also enjoy yoga, running, travel, and cooking, especially spicy food!
