My hope is that patients will realize they are not alone in their health care journey. They have found a person they can trust, that they can talk to, who will listen to them and will always have their best interests at heart.
I have over 20 years’ experience as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Twelve of those years have been as a Doctor of Nursing Practice, and I have seven years’ experience as an Advanced Practice Nurse in Gastroenterology. I am married to my husband Gerald, have two adult children, Jennifer (spouse Chad), Andrew (spouse Joey), and four grandsons. My husband and I both grew up in rural settings with many siblings and continue to enjoy large family gatherings. My hobbies include spending time with family, camping, hiking, fishing, gardening and reading.
