What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? As a certified nurse practitioner, I am passionate about breaking down barriers for Americans to access quality healthcare. By practicing on a virtual platform, I'm able to put my passion to work and really maximize patient outreach. I love to see the impacts of my practice and the improvements of health outcomes take shape right before my eyes. 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? It is imperative for primary care providers to support and engage their patients as active partners in their physical and behavioral healthcare. This partnership encourages health awareness, mutual accountability, and is proven to contribute to overall wellbeing. In my practice, I prioritize establishing a trusting rapport by actively listening and validating patients' concerns and emotions. The trust gained and this safe environment for open dialogue, establishes mutual respect and oftentimes assists me to identify more information of substance that can supplement my clinical process and plan. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I was born and raised in a small town in central Kentucky and currently reside in Lexington. I come from a family of four girls, my sisters are my best friends. I love to jet-set off to new destinations at every chance I get! I make sure to immerse myself in the culture and live like a local as much as possible. While at home, my two dogs Boomer and Bode are always by my side.
