My career began in 1985 as a registered nurse in the hospital caring for variety of patients, from outpatient surgery to critical care. In 2001, I became a family nurse practitioner after attending graduate school at Seattle Pacific University. I am currently board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
As a family nurse practitioner, I provide primary care for all ages. I diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions, order and interpret diagnostic lab work and tests, and prescribe medications and treatments. I collaborate with the physicians in the clinic and refer to specialists when needed.
I am passionate about the diversity of my practice. I particularly enjoy developing relationships with my patients so we can collaborate to optimize health and wellbeing.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, staying active and reading. I currently serve on the Anacortes School District Board of Directors and stay active in my church community.
