Why I work at ICHS:

I enjoy contributing to the health care safety net and being part of an organization with a long history of serving the community. It is amazing to work with people, colleagues and volunteers who share a common mission of service to the community. There really is not other organization in the state that shares in ICHS’ unique mix of patients, languages and history.

Patient Care Philosophy:

Patients know and understand themselves the best. So, it is very important to actively listen and reflect back what is said. To approach a patient as an entire person is important to maintain health and wellness – I always probe for the social, psychological, spiritual, cultural beliefs in addition to the physical condition.

Interesting Note About Myself:

My interests include gardening, snowboarding, traveling several times a year and dogs – have three of them. I also love good food – love to eat out and cook.
