WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a nurse practitioner, I provide care for a variety of general orthopaedic conditions with a primary focus on foot and ankle orthopaedics. My passion lies in being able to manage orthopaedic patients along the entire spectrum of care, both independently and alongside orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Karl M. Schweitzer. I have the privilege of collaborating with Dr. Schweitzer and supporting him in performing a variety of reconstructive procedures, including: fore/midfoot surgeries, ankle arthroscopy and cartilage restorative surgery, tendon/ligament repair/reconstruction, lower extremity fracture care, ankle replacement and fusion, and diabetic Charcot reconstruction. Whether a patient is in need of non-operative or surgical intervention, my goal is to empower my patients and tailor their care to fit their specific needs to allow them have the highest quality of life as possible. Prior to entering into the health care profession, I served in the military as a Marine and I currently still serve in the National Guard as an Army Aviator. I strive to tailor my practice to accommodate the unique needs of veterans, reservist, and active duty service members. I only see patients ages 13 and older.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

As an orthopaedic nurse practitioner, I believe research is essential in allowing me to provide the very best evidenced-based care to my patients. I have a strong interest in research focused on orthopaedic trauma of the lower extremities, total ankle replacements, prevention of deep vein thrombosis, and management of combat-related orthopaedic disorders in the military population.
