Clinical Interest for Patients
My scope of care includes not only the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease states, but care of the patient on the whole. My practice style is centered around giving quality care through customer service. I love to educate patients regarding their particular disease states, and give them the tools they need for success in its management.

Care Philosophy
My greatest passion is education. I routinely give lectures to staff nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and student nurses on the care of vascular patients. My greatest joy, however, is the education of my patients. I always want you to walk away with an understanding of your issue.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I am raising two delightful school age boys, and an Affenpincher dog. I enjoy telemark skiing, entertaining, gardening, and getting on one of my many bikes! My husband and I recently restored a 100 year old bungalow near City Park.

Volunteer Activities
If there are enough hours in the day I try to volunteer at my son's school. I have chaired fundraisers which sponsor STEAM education in Public Schools.
