The cost of medical care has skyrocketed in the last several years. Hospital and free-standing ERs are costly places to receive care and we are all responsible for more of the bill.

We can provide the same care for substantially less money because of our decreased overhead and efficiency.

CARE PHILOSOPHY

I believe that a person's health and wellness is affected not just by disease processes, but also by diet, environment, mood, support systems, cognitive processes and spiritual beliefs. In order to truly care for a person one must be aware of all the resources available and be able to use them fully for maximal health and healing of the whole person.

CARE PHILOSOPHY

Active patient engagement is key to a successful Provider-Patient relationship. It is only by truly listening to a patient's complaints and concerns that a provider can hope to identify what condition is affecting their patient; and it is only through communication, patient education and shared-decision making that a successful plan of care can be devised and implemented to get a patient back on the road to health.

EDUCATION

Indiana Wesleyan University - BS, Biology & General Studies, University of Oklahoma Health Science Center - BS, Nursing, University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston - MSN, Family Nurse Practitioner with concentration in Emergency and Trauma Care, ANCC Board Certified-Family Nurse Practitioner with additional certificates in Emergency and Trauma Care

CARE PHILOSOPHY

"Healthcare is as much about service as it is medicine. In order to treat a patient effectively one must completely shift their focus from themselves to the patient that they are treating and evaluating. While the disease process and pathophysiology is a vital aspect of providing safe and effective care, having a holistic approach paying attention to all aspects of that individuals life is the only way to provide care in my opinion. Learning and attempting to be humble, respective and most importantly selfless is I feel vital to provide safe, effective and excellent care."

CARE PHILOSOPHY

Patient-centric care: I believe it is important to get to know each of my patients in the short time we have together. I enjoy getting to know them, and learning about each patient and understanding their unique situation helps me to provide the best care I can for them. I think it is essential to understand what really caused the patient to want to see me that day and to utilize that information to try to ensure that they feel better after they’ve seen me than they did before seeking care.

EDUCATION

Fairfield University - BSN, University of Colorado Health Science Center - MSN Family Nurse Practitioner

CARE PHILOSOPHY

With each patient I encounter, I remind myself that being allowed to be involved with a person during a time in their life when they feel vulnerable is a privilege that most people are never afforded. Reminding myself of the vulnerable position the patient is in when they are entrusting me with their care also helps me to understand the range of reaction patients may have to interventions or emotions that surface as a result of my care. I also have a huge commitment to stay as current as possible with new medical research and information.
