Working as a nurse practitioner since 2005; 3 of those years were in Neurology and the other 7 were in Family Practice. I worked as a labor and delivery nurse and Newborn ICU nurse for 8 years prior to finishing NP school. What I love most about my job is the relationships I develop with my patients. I love to help problem-solve and form plans to help my patients get closer to their optimal health. I have 3 great kids; a son born in 1998, a daughter born in 2002 and a surprise bonus baby born in 2015! I love spending time with my family, especially when we are all just hovering over this cute baby girl in awe of how fun it is to have a baby in the house again. I love reading and researching on medical, religion, philosophy and political topics. I love to go on bike rides and hikes. I love getting to know my neighbors and feel lucky to live by such wonderful people.
