GreenField Health, 2007-present
Early in my medical career, I found that I enjoyed working with adolescents and young adults over any other age group. It seemed that this age group was not always given the attention necessary by health care and thus made it a personal goal to be able to “do it differently”.
This vision eventually led me to seek employment with GreenField Health. Prior to GreenField, I professionally grew and deepened my practice of medicine through a variety of clinical experiences. At Greenfield I realize my dream of having a general medical practice providing health care to adolescents and young adults in a structure that allows for optimal medical care. I am supported in pursuing my goals of listening with an open mind, collaborating with patients, families and /or other providers to improve the health of my patients, taking time to answer questions, explaining diagnosis and discussing management options so an informed decision can be reached.
Although I take my work responsibilities seriously, I also make time for leisure activities. I have a husband and 3 children. Family is very important to me. My husband and I are recent “empty nesters” and now have more time to enjoy traveling, biking, skiing and hiking together. For hobbies, I greatly enjoy knitting, reading, going to the theatre and other art forms, getting together with friends and new adventures!
