The reason I chose to become a healthcare provider is to help people. After losing my mom at an early age to asthma and pneumonia complications, I didn't want anyone else to experience what my little brothers and I had. As a nurse practitioner, I'm able to help others improve their health and quality of life by educating patients on disease prevention, disease process and management options. My approach to patient care is developing a plan of care in partnership with the patient and tailored to the patient to meet their individual needs. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, decorating, and going to the beach.
