WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I have had a passion for health and wellness for as long as I can remember, and I really like helping others. As a nurse practitioner, I enjoy being able to provide care, educate, and empower others to improve their overall health. I also value building strong relationships with my patients and their families. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner I worked as a nurse in a variety of settings, including providing inpatient care in Iowa and outpatient care for four years in the U.S. embassy in Lima, Peru. I have also been a member of the Ventricular Assistive Device Team at Duke University Hospital. Outside of work, I enjoy exercising, baking, and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I love traveling and hiking. We also love trying out new restaurants, and, of course, going back to our favorites.
