  • Breast Care
I like to say that my mom steered me into nursing because she was a nurse, and she recognized that I am a nurturer. Throughout my career in nursing, I have worked in areas that have been personally relevant to my life.

Sadly, I lost both my parents to cancer. Although my mother died of an unrelated cancer, she also had a history of breast cancer. Watching my parents struggle with their cancers motivated me to want to help others with cancer, including their families. I believe I bring a unique perspective dealing with the treatment of patients based on my own personal medical/nursing experiences in this field. I believe in treating patients in the same way I would want to be treated.

Patients can get the most out of their appointment with me by being prepared for the visit. This includes bringing in all medications, including both prescription and non-prescription (such as vitamins and herbal supplements) drugs, as well as a list of their family medical history.

I've been a member of the Prevea Health family since 1997. My certification credentials include DNP, APNP and WHNP. I started out my career as a phone triage nurse in OB/GYN. Through hard work and dedication, I obtained my Master’s degree in nursing in 2001, and a Doctorate in Nursing Practice in 2011.

I am married to a wonderful husband and have two beautiful daughters. Our family also includes our cockapoo, Patches, and a shichon (teddy bear), Mollie.

Outside of work I enjoy quilting, scrap-booking, fishing, golfing, and playing cards with my family.
