Getting to know your provider
Why did you choose your profession?
I have a passion for helping others. As a little girl, I knew I was meant to be a physician. I love helping to heal others – not only their physical body, but their mind and environment. I love looking at my patients as a whole person and getting to know them as a whole person.
Why do you work at NOAH?
NOAH provides the environment and resources to get to know and support my patients as a whole person. I can work side by side with behavioral health, nutrition, and dental. We also look at how we can improve our community to help make our patients’ health better.
What are your passions outside of your profession?
Spending time with family and friends and finding new adventures to share with them. I love cooking, gardening, lawn care, traveling and reading.
If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?
I was talking to my husband about this and said, “I’m not sure if I could quit my job and not see patients anymore.” He thought I was crazy! Why would I keep working! So in my world, I would use it to make sure my friends and family are supported, donate to NOAH and other organizations that I feel make a difference for our communities, travel and see patients as a physician somewhere in the world (at least a little bit!).
