A little about me

I am a foodie who married a chef! Food that tastes good is just as important to me as its nutritional value. I love exploring new restaurants and trying different cuisines. Going to brunch on the weekends is my favorite pastime!

Why I love my job

I believe in a patient centered approach to care. I love what I do because I get to be on the patients team as we work together to achieve their health goals.
