On Patients: I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them understand the heart and the problems that are leading to symptoms. I develop a plan with the patient that is aimed at improving their health and well being.
On Cardiology: The field of cardiology and cardiology imaging has advanced so much since I was in medical school. We have many more options for diagnosis and treatment. Outcomes are improving as a result.This makes it a great specialty to practice.
About Me: I have lived in this community on and off since 1994; first as an internist and now as a cardiologist. It is exciting that we can live in such a beautiful place and still offer state-of-the-art care in cardiology consultation and imaging.
Personal Information: My family includes my husband, Mark, and two sons, born here and “nearly” grown. Our household includes two big dogs, chickens and thousands of honeybees. I love the outdoors, including camping and hiking. I also try to keep up my knitting skills when I have the time. My family and I love it here and look forward to staying.
