Physician Assistant, an advanced practice degree for primary care providers who undergo extensive practical training and board certification, and are licensed to practice medicine including the full range of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
I enjoy working with individuals and families over time to help them understand their health and build confidence in the choices they make to improve it. Primary care is best suited to help patients understand their preventive needs as well as navigate the changing recommendations of evidence-based medicine. I am passionate about helping patients make sense of good health practices and the healthcare system itself. A love of people, their stories, obstacles, and triumphs has brought me joy in my medical practice and in my hobbies.
How I stay healthy and happy
Hiking, singing, participating in staged readings of new plays, game nights, and home dance parties with my husband and son.
