My philosophy is to provide patient-centered care with  goals of excellence in quality, service, and access.

What made you want to be in the medical field?

My Grandmother was a nurse and inspired me to enter healthcare. I started at the age of 14 working in the kitchen at the nursing home. By 16, I worked as a CNA and continued this through nursing school. I was an LPN at age 19 and RN at the age of 20. I worked in the rural hospital as a nurse and went back to school at age 34 and completed my BSN at age 36 and my MSN and Family Nurse Practitioner at age 39. So, healthcare is all I have ever known.
