As a nurse practitioner I have the opportunity to get to know patients while also continuously expanding my knowledge base in the science of medicine. The social side of me is fulfilled with one-on-one patient care, while the slightly nerdy side of me enjoys reading medical literature to solve complex clinical cases and stay up to date on the latest medical guidelines. Helping guide patients to find their own form of ideal health brings me great satisfaction. I chose to work at Mosaic because of the amazing providers and staff members who work here. The multidisciplinary team offers Mosaic patients remarkable care and I am proud to be part of this hard working group.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends while taking advantage of all that central Oregon has to offer. You can usually find me mountain biking, skiing, or gardening. We’re working on extending the growing season with a home-built greenhouse, but still working out the kinks. With any luck we’ll someday have home-grown greens in February.
