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 like to combine my medical and public health training to learn about the whole patient and their medical concerns. I like to explain the rationale behind my medical decision-making and collaborate with my patients to find the best treatment option(s) for them and their lifestyle. I’m interested in identifying barriers to care and finding out ways to overcome the barriers. Other interests include preventive medicine and women's health. I love to laugh with my patients and have been known to make bad puns.
How I stay healthy and happy
Yoga, biking, going for long walks, cooking healthy meals, reading, spending time with my husband and daughters, coming up with new puns
