Why I Work at ICHS:

I enjoy working with people of all ethnic and socio-economic background; ICHS enables me to serve these populations who are typically underserved in our community.

Patient Care Philosophy:

I like to empower patients with skills and knowledge so they can take an active role in their wellness, and to provide resources where needed to enable them to care for themselves and their family.

Interesting Note About Myself:

I enjoy travelling, hiking, and gardening.  In my quiet time, I like to listen to music with a good cup of coffee.
