What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I am passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves. My various health care experiences have taught me the importance of timely and compassionate care to avoid preventable consequences. In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? Developing a relationship with each patient to reach their own unique physical and behavioral health goals is my priority. I keep up to date on the latest research and treatments to help each patient achieve their best outcomes. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a Master’s Degree from the University of Cincinnati and University of Northern Kentucky post Master’s degree. I have had the amazing opportunity to work with patients of all ages and backgrounds in the Midwest and Western parts of the country allowing me to learn and think outside of the box for improving patient outcomes. In my spare time I enjoy traveling to visit my family in many parts of the country. I also love to play tennis, run, and take our puppy on lots of walks.
