My passion is quality of life, which is what prompted me to become a healthcare provider. I enjoy seeing people live the best life they can and encourage people to approach their healthcare in a preventative way versus treat conditions after the deterioration of quality has occurred. However, I want people to understand their conditions and lead them into getting the best quality of life they can. I am a wife, mother of 3 boys, nurse practitioner, and roller derby player. I worked as a Cardiac Nurse for 8 ½ years and then in a Long Term Acute Care Hospital for 2 ½ years. I graduated from Simmons College with a Master’s in Science in Nursing Degree.
