Why did you choose your specialty area?
I have been an emergency provider/flight nurse for most of my career along with serving as a volunteer EMS provider. I have enjoyed my emergency work, but missed developing a relationship with patients since I was only involved in their care for a short period of time. Primary care allows the provider and patient to develop a partnership to assure health and wellness. I look forward to developing this health partnership with my patients and progressing into a new area of my career.
How do you spend your spare time?
I love to be outside spending time with my amazing family. Running and weight lifting are activities I enjoy to keep physically fit. I enjoy helping with activities at my church, as building my faith is a large part of my life.
#1 health tip you can offer
Exercise! Sitting has been branded the new smoking as inactivity results in a huge health risk from cardiovascular problems to even depression. So many people do not get enough exercise because they have a misunderstanding and fear of what it involves. You don't have to run a marathon to obtain health benefits from exercise. Exercise is the best "fountain of youth" medicine we can offer, and it is free.
