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).
I value a sincere, compassionate, respectful provider-patient relationship that incorporates patient preferences, beliefs, and diversity as an individual. I enjoy partnering with patients of all ages with a broad range of clinical problems, and especially seniors and those with chronic conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease. My philosophy incorporates promotion and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle while encouraging patients to be active participants in their own care and healthcare decisions.
How I stay healthy and happy
To stay healthy, I power walk, do resistance training, and meditate. My hobbies include trying out new recipes, gardening, reading, and nature walks.
