About me

I was born and raised in Connecticut, a state with the perfect blend of urban and rural, many quaint neighborhoods and some of New England’s best beaches.  

My mom, who is a retired nurse, inspired me to pursue a career in the medical field. I admired her ability to create lasting bonds with her patients and I wanted to be just like her. I took a small detour in biomedical research, before finding myself wanting to go back to the clinical side of medicine which gave me the joy of interacting with patients and their families. I can’t really imagine a more fulfilling job.

I want Sanitas patients to know that we are here to help them meet their health goals. The road to good health involves not just the patient or their family doctor, but a whole multidisciplinary team looking out for their needs and helping them achieve their goals.  Our focus is on preventing illness and supporting our patients with chronic conditions through our care programs and health coaches.

When I take my white coat off, I enjoy baking, cooking and gardening depending on the season! However, in the past year I have curbed my culinary activities with homemade soap making and creating other homemade beauty and bath products.  I appreciate knowing and controlling what will go into the products I make.
