Nurse Practitioner, a degree for nurses who complete master’s-level training and board certification in order to practice medicine. As nurses, NPs bring a special sort of caring to their work. Alternate degrees include ANP (Adult Nurse Practitioner), FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner), and WHNP (Women's Health Nurse Practitioner).
As a nurse practitioner, I'm all about meeting people where they are, and my goal is for my patients to come away from every visit feeling listened to, cared for, and well-informed about their healthcare decisions. In addition to preventive care and management of chronic conditions, I'm especially interested in women's health, LGBTQ+ care, and sexual medicine, as well as mental heaIth and substance use (including Suboxone therapy).
How I stay healthy and happy
I enjoy cooking, trail running, and nerding out about my side passion, massage therapy.
