Philosophy Of Medicine

"To be able to practice as a nurse practitioner in a primary care setting allows me to truly know the patient and guide their care from a primary standpoint. It gives me a chance for meaningful interactions throughout the patients lives by getting to know them more through individualized care. I am blessed to have the opportunity to help people at the forefront and gateway of care. This internal motivation to help people and be a positive force for good inspires me to do what I do."
