I believe primary care is synonymous with preventative care and should focus on the whole 'person' including behavioral health and living a life of health. Healthcare should start with patient education and the ability to recognize medical problems before they develop into bigger concerns. I am a family certified nurse practitioner who has worked in the intensive care units at some of the most prestigious hospitals in the nation. I have also worked in aesthetics and focus on quality of life and healthy habits. I believe in balance and try to incorporate those fundamentals into my own life. I am married to a wonderful man, I am a mother of 2 fantastic toddler boys and I have 1 fur baby. I love to travel, hike and learn about history.
