About Me

I'm a nurse practitioner specializing in hospitalist medicine, which means I care for patients who have been admitted to the hospital. I've been practicing for over 16 years. My passion lies in providing top-notch care to patients from all walks of life, embracing and celebrating our diverse population. It's essential to me that every individual feels safe and accepted, especially members of the LGBTQ+ community. I strive to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable seeking the care they need, and I'm committed to making a positive impact on their well-being. Let me be your partner in health and, together, we'll work toward a healthier future.
