WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I became a family nurse practitioner with the goal of partnering with my patients to improve their overall health.  As a nurse practitioner, I focus on health promotion, disease prevention and management, and encouraging patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices to improve their overall quality of life. As a member of The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, I am part of a large multidisciplinary team that blends clinical expertise in diagnosing and treatment with an added emphasis on comprehensive, compassionate care that includes the entire family. All are needed to make a difference in the lives of whom we care for. I think of every patient as a member of my family with the goal of providing the best care that I can. Outside of work, I enjoy running, traveling with my husband, Steelers football and spending time with our three daughters and their families.
