Clinical Interest for Patients
I have a specific interest in participating in quality improvement in an effort to improve the care and experience we provide our patients and families. I am interested in all aspects of primary care as it relates to geriatrics and their families/caregivers. In addition, I have special interest in topics of depression, anxiety, grief/loss, end of life care and helping my patients experience a sense of peace and improved quality of life.
Practicing as a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner is one of my greatest joys and honors. I feel very fortunate and privileged to be a part of the care of my patients and a support to their families and caregivers. I believe in a holistic, patient centered and collaborative approach to care, and I strive for that everyday. I consider myself a life long learner, and some of my greatest teachers are my patients. Additionally, I value the role as a preceptor and Senior Instructor for the many students I am able to spend time with, as well as share my love of geriatrics along the way. I feel incredibly fortunate to work in the Seniors Clinic and within the Division of Geriatric Medicine with so many phenomenal providers and educators.
