Practice Philosophy: Patient-centered care. My role as a health care provider is more of a partnership. I partner with patients and families to assist them in making health care decisions. I love working in the community where I live and knowing that I am making a difference. Establishing a trusting relationship with my patient is very important.
I truly enjoy helping people; even through difficult and trying situations. My role as a palliative care nurse practitioner allows me to offer education, support, and medical care to patients. It also allows me the opportunity to walk with patients through their end-of-life journey, which can be scary but is also sacred and precious.
