Getting to know your provider

  • Why did you choose your profession?

    I began my career working a technologist in a cancer laboratory. Although I loved the challenges of working in oncology, after several years, I elected to become a PA so that I could work with patients directly. As a Family Practice PA, I value building long-lasting relationships with patients, working to set goals, and encouraging them to become active participants in their healthcare.

  • Why do you work at NOAH?

    I was privileged to have worked in several of the NOAH clinics during my medical training. I found that I loved the missions of NOAH and having access to a wealth of integrated resources, including nutrition and behavioral health. I saw the impact that NOAH providers were making in the community and am fortunate to be a part of this team.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    I spend my time with my husband and two daughters. We have four border collies and enjoy training for and competing in sheepdog trials. I also try to keep myself active with hiking and running.

  • If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?

    I would love to take my family and travel to check off all our “bucket list” items. Then, settle down on a large ranch in the mountains with lots of dogs, horses, and livestock. I imagine I’d continue being involved in medicine through community outreach and medical missions.
