What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider?
I am passionate in the pursuit of equitable health outcomes and helping all patients understand their health conditions. I believe in the power of educating patients in a way that leaves them feeling engaged, understood, and empowered to make decisions and manage their health.
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?
I believe the role of a primary care provider is to listen to patients and advocate for their needs and overall well-being. The primary care provider holistically considers physical health, behavioral health, and various social risks that may impact health and supports the patient in the pursuit of wellness.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I love being with my family. I also enjoy spending time enjoying beautiful weather on my bicycle, a kayak, or a pair of skis.
