About Me

I chose a career in medicine because it allows me to use my knowledge and skills to improve another person’s life. My goal is to take the best possible care of my patients as well as their families. For me, this means learning about the person, as well as the condition - to care for people and not just treat a disease.

I chose to pursue two specialty areas, both internal medicine and pediatrics, in order to receive in depth education and training in both fields to be able to care for patients of all ages. My practice includes
premature and full-term newborns, children and teens, adults and the elderly. With dual training in both pediatrics and internal medicine, I am uniquely equipped to care for patients who might otherwise need to transition to a new physician as they age. 

Joining Blessing Physician Services gave my husband and I the opportunity to return to our hometown to raise our family close to extended family and friends. Collaborating with this team of exceptional physician partners has been very rewarding.
