As a Primary Care Provider, my goal is to help patients achieve optimal health by promoting a healthy lifestyle, educating on preventive care, and effectively managing their chronic conditions. I believe in open and honest communication, taking the time to listen to patients’ health concerns and developing mutual trust and respect to create personalized plans to achieve realistic goals so patients can spend time doing things that bring them joy and fulfillment.
I continue to teach group fitness classes, run, and enjoy outdoor activities as often as I can. As a mother of grown children, I also enjoyed being a Den Mother, Troop Leader, soccer, and softball Mom. I plan on completing my doctorate degree in nursing at Marquette University in the spring of 2023. Returning to school to extend my career into healthcare allows me to see my patients through a different lens.
Doctors of internal medicine, also called “internists”, are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor” because they often act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems. Doctors of internal medicine treat the whole person, not just internal organs.
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dedicated to the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. Treating a child is not like treating a miniature adult. A major difference between pediatrics and adult medicine is that children cannot make decisions for themselves. We support the health and well-being of children and are advocates for children’s health issues.
