WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I began to think about nursing and medicine as a school ager when going to visit my grandmother in the hospital and seeing what a difference it made to have a good nurse providing care for her. After college, I worked as a staff nurse for a few years with both adults and adolescents. Along the way, I found that I wanted to be in a setting where I could care for people with chronic illnesses and where I could develop longer-term relationships with my patients. I went to graduate school and have worked as a nurse practitioner for more than 25 years. I continue to follow and provide care for children and adolescents with pulmonary issues such as persistent cough, asthma, or exercise induced shortness of breath. I believe strongly that we need to find ways to help children and teens with pulmonary issues live life as normally and fully as possible and preventive care is part of what I do. I also participate in clinical research and am excited about how research contributes to improved care for patients. Outside of work I'm involved in community outreach activities, in my church, and also love to hike, bike, explore new places and eat out at new restaurants.
