My Passion for Healthcare

When I was 18 years old, I had this conversation with my mother as we walked down a hall of the local hospital, passing a patient's room: Her: "How'd you like to take care of THAT guy?" Me: "How'd you like to BE that guy?" Which convinced her that my choice of a nursing career was going to be a good fit for me. The transition from nurse to nurse practitioner was a natural progression, as was the narrowing of focus from general adult care to neurology, a fascinatingand ever-changing field to me. Even so, I'm always asking myself the same old question, "What's it like to be this guy?"

My Clinical Focus

I like the variety of a general neurology practice, and I think I am helping to fulfill a need. I get to work with physicians who specialize in stroke, epilepsy, dementia, neuromuscular diseases, neuro-oncology and so on. I see patients in the hospital, and then again after discharge, to foster continuity of care. The sub-specialists I collaborate with are the best!
