What inspired you to get into healthcare?
I was inspired to go into healthcare because of my family. I grew up in and around a hospital. My whole family works in healthcare and I grew up wanting to do the same.
What is one easy change someone can do to live a healthier life?
One easy change that people can do to be healthier is take thirty minutes a day to be active.
What do you enjoy most about being a primary care provider at Pender Community Hospital & Medical Clinics?
My favorite part of working for PCH and PMC is getting to know the people and families in the community. I also couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with. The community makes going to work everyday enjoyable and I feel privileged to be able provide them care.
We often hear you shouldn’t just go to the Dr. when you’re sick, what are the greatest benefits of wellness visits?
Wellness exams are beneficial for multiple reasons. First you get to know your provider and they get to know you. We as providers can identify risk factors based on personal and family history to determine plan of care that is patient specific. We also set up preventative testing such as mammograms colonoscopy and lab work.
