I like to hike, run and do hot yoga.
Professionally I am excited about the genetic testing now available in psychiatry. I treat across the lifespan but enjoy working with children the most.

I was drawn to the field of psychiatric nursing because I believe that mental health is an integral part of overall health and well-being. I enjoy helping individuals make progress toward wellness and recovery. My goal is to provide care that is client-centered and focused on individual strengths and goals, forming a partnership with clients and families. It is important to me to work collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that is founded in evidence- based practice and also addresses the needs, beliefs, and values of each client.
