Nurse Practitioner, an advanced practice degree for primary care providers who complete master’s-level training and board certification and who practice medicine independently. Related degrees include ANP (Adult Nurse Practitioner), FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner), WHNP (Women's Health Nurse Practitioner), and APNP (Advance Practice Nurse Practitioner).
I think compassion is at the heart of healthcare, and I see a patient as a person rather than a set of diagnoses. I listen to the whole problem and work with each person to help them achieve what they want in life. I enjoy working with families in the context of their communities, so I see newborns to senior citizens. I have special interests in addiction medicine and women's health issues.
How I stay healthy and happy
My favorite thing to do is to take my dogs for a hike! I also enjoy reading, quilting, embroidery, camping, and building projects.
