About Me

As a nurse practitioner working in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, I focus on helping patients improve their quality of life. Our patients have various functional impairments, often due to stroke, injury or other disabling conditions. Helping them overcome their current deficits is both challenging and rewarding. I am constantly impressed by how strong and resilient our patients and their families can be when faced with traumatic events.

I am fortunate and proud to work with an outstanding multidisciplinary team. Our physicians, therapists and entire staff are committed to helping our patients through any means possible. By combining teaching, research and clinical care, we promote and provide the highest level of health care possible.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy connecting with my community by participating in a neighborhood book club, yoga and other community events.

    During my appt. Dr went over meds with me, I haven't seen this Dr since 2018 or 2019, the Dr questioned the medication I am taking overall and was unclear why I was taking certain meds due to other medication I am taking. All of my regular Dr's have went over all my medications and know all medications I am on and worked to have my medications on the lowest dose possible.
