“I knew I wanted to become a Nurse Practitioner when I was completing my Bachelor’s degree in nutrition and realized I wanted more autonomy in healthcare to positively impact patient care. My nursing background is in Orthopedics, which furthered my interest in becoming an FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner) since I treated patients from all walks of life, with a variety of conditions. Working in healthcare has allowed me to learn exciting and interesting things not only about medicine, but also about people and different cultures. In Urgent Care every day is new and different, which I love!”

“I wanted to choose a profession where my work directly impacts the health and well-being of those I treat. Working in urgent care is great because I get to treat patients of all age ranges and I like the diversity in the ailments that we treat. At our clinic, a lot of patients are local to the area, so they’re returning patients and it’s nice to be able to form a bond and get to know them and their families.”
