Professional Profile

I became a nurse practitioner because I wanted to help people take control of their health and improve their overall wellbeing.

From a very young age I was drawn to caring for others and the science of medicine. In college, this heart for caring led me to pursue a career in nursing and I worked as a nurse for six years — five of them at NorthBay Medical Center. As a nurse I saw many critically ill patients and always found myself longing for a way that I could help prevent people from becoming so ill. I wanted to help stop the suffering that I was seeing from diseases that were very much preventable. I wanted to promote health, advocate for disease prevention and above all, to educate. This is what led me to become a nurse practitioner.

As a nurse practitioner I love to focus on health maintenance and disease prevention. I want to give my patient’s longer, healthier, happier lives by educating them on treatments and lifestyle changes which can enhance their emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. My work allows me to assess a patient’s health concerns, order labs/ diagnostic tests and provide a diagnosis/ treatment plan (medications, lifestyle changes etc.). I want my patients to view me as a member of their personal healthcare team — where their doctor and I work closely together to promote their overall health and prevent disease.

I want my patients to know that I am concerned about them as a whole person — body, mind and spirit — and aim to help them achieve optimal health and wellness.

That’s the best part of my work — helping to make a difference in the lives of patients. I love showing my patient’s with every encounter that they are cared for and that I am here to help them along their journey.

I am here to listen and I care what my patients have to say. I want to hear their concerns, fears, anything they want to share. Together we can work toward not only maintaining but also improving their health.
