My Areas of Practice
My role is to partner with patients and the care providers and staff at my clinic to give additional support to patients with complex needs and/or chronic conditions under the 'Health Care Home' model of care. I do this by identifying & working to minimize barriers to care, providing health education, and being an advocate for patients when needed. I strongly value a holistic approach - meaning I seek to understand the unique physical, mental/emotional/spiritual, social/financial, and cultural influences for each patient. I love providing personalized education and resource guidance to help people be informed participants in their care. I whole heartedly encourage patients and families to ask lots of questions and seek clarity every step of the way.
As a Certified Diabetes Educator I meet with adult patients to help them understand the best ways and the options they have for caring for themselves. This involves many things including counsel about diet, physical activity, medications/insulin, and community resources. I really enjoy working closely with patients to help them acheive a healthy, balanced approach to managing their diabetes.

My husband and I spend lots of time with family and friends and enjoy cooking, biking, and traveling together. I am an avid reader; historical fiction being my favorite genre. I am passionate about the many ways yoga can be helpful for a wide array of things and hope to start teaching prenatal yoga in the near future.
