I enjoy working as a physician assistant in cardiology because I am able to provide compassionate care to patients while focusing on education.  Being a physician assistant allows me to be very involved in patient care while being able to take extra time to talk with patients and their families. I am especially interested in cardiac prevention, congestive heart failure, and women's hearth health. 

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the violin, traveling, seeing movies, and spending a quiet evening at home. My husband and I are always on our toes with our two young boys (and trying to keep up with them)!!
