Three Fun Facts About Me
- I have a wonderful husband, 3 active sons, many guinea pigs and backyard chickens.
- 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.
- 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.
