As a healthcare professional, my philosophy of care is rooted in a holistic approach to health and wellness, with a focus on individualized patient care. I firmly believe that every patient deserves respect, empathy and the highest quality of medical attention possible.

My commitment is to ensure that each patient is treated as an individual, not just a set of symptoms. I am dedicated to understanding the unique needs, challenges and goals of each patient, and to working collaboratively with them to develop a personalized and effective treatment plan.

I am a strong advocate for preventive care and health education. I believe that empowering patients with the knowledge and tools they need to take charge of their own health is a vital part of the healing process. I strive to foster a caring and trusting relationship with my patients, which I believe is crucial in facilitating open communication, shared decision-making, and ultimately, better health outcomes.

In my practice, I value the use of evidence-based medicine, but also recognize the importance of integrating this with the personal preferences and unique circumstances of each patient. I am constantly striving to learn and grow as a healthcare provider, and to incorporate the latest research and innovations into my practice to provide the best possible care.

Above all, my goal is to serve as a compassionate, reliable and dedicated healthcare partner to my patients, helping them navigate their health journey with confidence and peace of mind.

Outside of my professional life, I find joy and inspiration across a wide range of mediums and activities. I enjoy spending quality time with my family and fur babies. We enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, gardening, running, exploring trails, and we’re always looking for our next favorite restaurant.

Clinical interest for patients

As a dedicated medical professional, my clinical interests are diverse and centered around providing comprehensive and innovative care for my patients. They include:

Preventive Medicine: I am passionate about preventing disease before it starts. This involves promoting healthy behaviors such as regular exercise and getting a good night's rest, implementing regular health screenings, and educating patients about the importance of a balanced lifestyle. I believe that proactive measures can significantly reduce the incidence of many common health issues.

Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS): I am deeply interested in the use of POCUS, a versatile diagnostic tool that allows for real-time, bedside imaging. This technology assists in making immediate patient-care decisions, performing essential bedside procedures such as central venous, arterial, and hemodialysis line placement, and helps facilitate accurate diagnoses when time is of the essence.

Flight Medicine: As part of my commitment to serve in diverse and challenging environments, I have a keen interest in flight medicine. This field of medicine focuses on the physiological effects of air travel on patients, and it has allowed me to provide critical care even in the air.

Critical Care Transport: This involves providing life-saving care to patients during transport be it on the ground in the ambulance or a 4-wheeler off the beaten path, in the air in a helicopter or airplane, and often in emergency situations. I am particularly interested in how to optimize care in these settings, ensuring that patients receive the best possible treatment during transit to a medical facility in their time of need.

These areas of interest guide my practice and my professional development. I am committed to staying up-to-date and improving my skills in these areas to provide the highest level of care to my patients, regardless of their situation or location.
