Family Medicine allows me to provide evidenced-based, high-quality care over time, with a patient-centered approach. What I value most are my relationships with patients throughout their lives. I strive to know my patients as people, beyond just their immediate medical needs, and to tailor our discussions and shared decisions based on the values of the individual patient. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, an emergency medicine physician, our two children and our puppy. I am also very involved in my church where my husband and I lead worship. Our whole family loves crossfit.
