Profile
ABOUT ME

I am passionate about caring for patients with serious illnesses and their families. Using a holistic approach and the most up to date science, I bring years of experience in treating challenging symptoms and in improving quality of life. I am confident in my ability to help patients and families navigate the healthcare system while supporting their goals. My training and knowledge in geriatrics have made a special place in my heart for older adults and their families. On a personal note, I have been a caregiver for an elderly parent with dementia and have faced the joy and sadness that only someone on this journey place can feel. This experience has strengthened my desire to help others who are facing similar challenges. As a nurse practitioner, I have training that allows me to diagnose and treat illness and at the same time bring a nurses caring touch.
