What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? Putting others before yourself is a must. My patients are my family. I go above and beyond to meet the needs of others. I thoroughly enjoy listening to them and making them feel comfortable. 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? A primary care provider should develop a rapport and a trusting relationship with their patients.They need to listen to the needs of others in order to treat both their physical and emotional needs. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I have been a FNP for 14 years. I enjoy spending time with my husband of 25 years and my two daughters ages 21 and 20. I love going to the beach, fishing, biking and reading.
