What led you to choose your area of focus?
I really enjoy the variety of medical issues you are able to see in walk-in clinics. We are here to treat anyone and everything, which can be very challenging, but also very rewarding.
How do you feel your training, experience and expertise can you serve OMC and its patients?
I had fantastic training in Nashville, TN in a variety of different specialties with many different demographics. I not only trained in downtown urban settings, but more rural communities in Tennessee. I was also fortunate enough to train in a small Southern African country called Eswatini, which taught me many valuable lessons, one of which is how to work with little resources for the best patient outcomes. I’m hoping I can take all of the experience I gathered to best suit the needs of the communities on the Peninsula.
What do you find most rewarding about working with patients?
Knowing that I was able to help someone that day. Seeing someone get that sigh of relief once they know they are getting the care they need.
What can patients expect from a visit with you?
Compassionate and thorough care.
What drew you to the Olympic Peninsula?
It’s beautiful! My husband, dog, and I love to explore the many different things the Peninsula has to offer.
How do you enjoy spending your free time?
My husband, dog, and I are always trying to sneak away to the beach. If I’m not outside, I’m usually at home baking.
What’s a fun or interesting fact your patients might be surprised to learn about you?
Peanut butter is one of my main food groups. If I could eat it at every meal, I would!
