Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology

On staff since October 2020

Children's Title: Advanced Practice Provider

"What I like the most about my job is that I get to assist patients who are in their prime ages of physical, emotional and psychological development. It is very fulfilling for me to guide and mentor my patients as they navigate through several physiological and psychological challenges during their adolescent lives. I believe in creating a safe and comforting space for my patients which promotes a provider-patient relationship that is filled with trust and confidence. Helping my patients understand and manage the changes going on in their body and encouraging them to follow safe health practices are some of the most rewarding aspects of being a Nurse Practitioner."
