Biographical Information

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a doctor, my dad being a high school science teacher and my mom being a registered nurse might have had something to do with that dream. The idea of being part of something bigger than yourself, being able to serve in and positively influence the community is something that always interested me about medicine. Being able to help people get and stay well and healthy excites me. I believe the best kind of patient is a patient who is fully invested and interested in their wellness and health care. I truly think it is my job to present the patient with a list of options and to discuss the pros and cons of each. Every patient is different, so every situation and subsequent choice is unique. There are some straightforward decisions in medicine, but most of the time there are an array of choices and helping the patient making the best decision for themselves is a vital part of my job. Outside of the office, I can be found driving my children places and watching them play sports and grow into great human beings. I enjoy doing hot yoga and other forms of exercise.
