About me

At Sanitas, my patients' health and wellness are my priority. Each member of my team works diligently to provide my patients with personalized healthcare of the highest quality. I approach patients by guiding them to be active participants in their healthcare and helping them meet their health and wellness goals. I try to connect with each patient and appreciate their individual personalities.

I was born and raised in North Dakota and moved to New England several years ago. I’ve enjoyed calling Connecticut home for the past few years. I chose a career in nursing because of my love of science and working with people and my journey to becoming a family nurse practitioner was inspired by my desire to work with patients and families throughout their lifespans. My education includes a doctorate in nursing practice from the University of Mary, near Bismarck, ND. In addition to speaking English, I'm gradually learning Spanish.

When I am not working, I can usually be found baking or cooking in my kitchen. I enjoy trying cuisines from around the world—the more challenging the recipe the better. I also enjoy staying fit through exercise classes and running.
