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.
