Primary care is a joy for me as I strive to know my patients as individuals and provide care that is evidence-based but make decisions on conditions that may not be covered with extensive research. I enjoy discussing preventive care and answering questions as needed. We try to balance the needs of patients with the busyness of our practice. I want each person to feel that even in a short visit we try to listen and really be there as you go through an illness or just normal life transitions. 

In the fall of 2011, I became part of a team to help train providers and offices on the use of the electronic health record. We worked with several offices in the community to bring about a tool that will continue to help provide excellent care by allowing patients to be more involved in the care they receive and also allowing providers better communication. As a working mom and wife, I relate to the struggles of trying to do it all and trying to find time to care for oneself. 

I work part-time so I have time to be with my three children as they grow and spend time with my husband. I love being able to see patients part of the week and be home with the kids or at their schools for part of the week. I run three to four days a week for a total or 15 miles per week or more. 

I love running 10 mile and half-marathon races and recently ran my first marathon when my youngest went to kindergarten. My other hobby is cooking. We enjoying making healthy nutritious meals from local produce. Meals at our home are an experience. I look forward to meeting you and helping you live the healthiest life you can.
