Johns Hopkins University
I was drawn to the role of Family Nurse Practitioner after initially pursuing a career in nutrition, serving as a community health educator in the Peace Corps and later as a dietitian in a hospital setting. Through these experiences I realized that I wanted to be able to address individuals’ health concerns in a more comprehensive manner.
With over twelve years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner, my passion for Family Medicine remains strong. I am committed to staying current with evidence-based guidelines. I continue to emphasize principles of healthy living, and I have a special interest in medical acupuncture, which I have incorporated into my practice over the past two years.
I always look forward to spending as much time as possible with my husband and our energetic and creative twin sons. Together we enjoy a wide range of activities from board games to Lego building to bike riding, and playing with our two boisterous young beagles.
