Education:

University of Indianapolis

Certification:

FNP-C

Why I Work at ICHS:

I wanted to work at a federally qualified health center which aligned with my values and passion as a provider. I view health as not only physical, but mental and social and I value ICHS’s approach to address the social determinants of health in a patient-centered medical home. I chose to do a residency at ICHS because I believe that providers must have time to master a vast body of knowledge and integrate evidence-based medicine into their clinical practice.

Patient Care Philosophy:

Five heads are better than one. I believe integrating a collaborative care approach to patient care improves outcomes. As a new provider, I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from other providers and specialists. Everyone is entitled to quality health care and my goal is to learn and grow so that I can deliver the best care possible to my patients.

Interesting Note About Myself:

I have lived in three countries (China, Israel, US), and seven states (Arizona, California, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Washington).

It is important to advocate for human rights both as a health provider and a national/global citizen.

Why I Work at ICHS:

I want to complete my residency at ICHS because I believe in the mission: to provide culturally competent, high-quality care to the whole family to build a healthy and productive nation. As community healthcare needs become complicated with lack of insurance, lack of resources, multiple comorbidities, mental illness and substance use disorder, an organization such as ICHS is a lifeline to many. Also, I have heard from nurse practitioners who are currently in the ICHS residency program that ICHS fosters a collaborative practice that facilitates inclusion.

Patient Care Philosophy:

Patients deserve to be treated with compassion and dignity regardless of status or race. 

Interesting Note About Myself:

I think humor, good food, hiking and gardening have the potential to heal.
