As a nurse, I always embraced the belief that to achieve optimum health and better health outcomes, partnership between the patient, their family and the health care team is vital. Because of my background as a neuroscience ICU nurse, I love taking care of the patient population with neurological disorders. As an advanced practice provider, I want to continue the same partnership with them in the outpatient world. I hope that I can be instrumental to help my patients understand their health problems so they can make the best decisions and live longer, healthier lives.
