Philosophy of care

I believe everyone deserves the best care, especially at the end of life. We have the tools and means to help, and you deserve a say in your care plan. I do not like to tell people what they must do. I like to work together with you and your loved ones to find the best plan and outcome for everyone involved. 

 

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine after working as an emergency medical technician (EMT) for several years in high school and college; it seemed natural to continue down the medical route. I did not always know I wanted to be a physician, especially a hospice physician, but I know this is where I belong. My journey has led me to hospice, and it is the perfect fit for me.

 

Community involvement

I grew up as a volunteer firefighter and EMT and my family remains heavily involved in those activities in my hometown. I still get back from time to time to help with events, or to assist my mother with her duties to the department.

 

Personal interests

When I am not at work, you will probably find me with my dog. We like to go hiking or generally just be outdoors. I also like to hunt and fish. I am a big proponent of work/life balance, and I try to take advantage of the time I have away from the office to continue to stay healthy.
