What led you to become a nurse practitioner or choose your focus of medicine?
Becoming a nurse practitioner allowed me to not only further my career and training within the nursing profession but also become more involved in the development and implementation of treatment plans for cardiology patients.

What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
The most rewarding thing as a provider is to see firsthand a person’s quality of life improve because of the treatment/interventions prescribed.   

What is something about you that only your patients would know?
How much I enjoy teaching individuals about cardiology and the interventional treatment options available to them. 

How would a patient describe you?
A provider who listens and is Caring, Honest, and Trustworthy

In your opinion, what’s the most important factor in a nurse practitioner-patient relationship?
I feel the patient-provider relationship must be built on trust. As providers, we should be able to trust that patients are committed to implementing the prescribed treatment or lifestyle changes of a treatment plan, while patients must be able to trust a provider in utilizing the most beneficial and individualized care for themselves. 

 What can a patient expect when they have you as a nurse practitioner?
An individualized care plan that is developed through a partnership based on listening and consideration of their own personal wishes/concerns. I also strive to maintain a positive and encouraging environment to assist patients in maintaining healthy lifestyle choices.

What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
I am encouraged by the numerous advanced treatment options that we at Baptist offer to our cardiology patients, eliminating the need for lengthy travel to out-of-town medical centers for specialized care.

What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
I hope to make every patient feel that their wishes/needs/questions are heard and addressed and that they feel included in an individualized treatment plan

Describe one of the top ways you ensure each patient receives the quality, personal health care he/she deserves. 
Listening. Every patient is different and by simply listening, we can ensure that quality care is personalized based on those individual needs or situations.

Is there anything more or extra you would like prospective patients to know about you?
I strive to treat each patient as I would like for my family to be treated.

Do you have any specific medical interests?
