I believe the role of a primary care provider is to approach the patient as a whole (mentally and physically) and ensure they feel understood and heard. This can be a vulnerable time for patients and its important to meet patients where they are at with kindness and empathy. Outside of work, I love to get outside and be active. Name an activity and I am there. I love hiking, tennis, any water activity, yoga. I also enjoy the mountains and go snowboarding whenever I can in the winter. Reading and podcasts are also things I enjoy. I love to learn.
