Growing up, I had several health conditions that made me realize I wanted to have the knowledge to care for myself and my family. My parents worked hard to provide the best possible care for my brother and me, which motivated me to pursue a career in health care to one day provide the same exceptional care for my own family and others. I believe in treating others as I myself would want to be treated. This allows me to provide care with empathy and compassion. Providing positive patient experiences is one of my highest priorities in delivering optimal patient care.
