GET TO KNOW YOUR DOCTOR
Why did you become a nurse practitioner?
I really value the opportunity to help equip people to maintain good health and prevent long-term issues from emerging in the first place. I came to women’s health in particular because I wanted to help women be empowered in their healthcare choices. My work in women’s health has included helping with pregnancy and delivery in an inpatient setting before going on to work in outpatient settings like prenatal care, ob/gyn, contraception, reproductive health, and preventive health.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love being able to educate patients – helping women understand how their bodies function during various life phases, which symptoms may occur related to child-bearing, menopause, and endometriosis. I try to help foster a deeper understanding of what can happen inside of the body to cause pelvic pain.
What’s something you would like people to know about pelvic health?
There is sometimes a misconception that medications aren’t good for us, that some things are natural vs not natural. I think it’s really important to educate and reassure people about the safety of new treatments and proper medical therapies, so that they can adequately consider all of the available options.
