THREE FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

  1.  I have a wonderful husband, 3 active sons, many guinea pigs and backyard chickens.
  2. We love to travel in our spare time!  I have traveled to all 50 States and many countries.  We love to go camping, hiking, and kayaking as a family and are always open to exploring new adventures.
  3. I am the oldest girl of nine children and was born in Malawi, Africa.  Our whole family was recently able to volunteer in the small village of Nhkata Bay where I was born. We loved working in the schools and nursery and made many wonderful friends.

WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR JOB?

I love that every day I can come home with a smile on my face when I think of something funny or cute one of my patients said or did.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to watch my patients grow up, from newborns to now high school students.  I am honored to be a part of their lives.
