Hospital Medicine

Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"My practice style is to engage patients in their own health decisions based on evidence-based medicine, with respect for their individual goals of care. I do this by supporting each patient's health based on their cultural, educational, and spiritual backgrounds."

"I stay inspired by celebrating the joy in everyday moments with my husband, adorable kids and best friends. When not at work, I can be found dancing in my kitchen, singing show tunes, teaching yoga, attempting meditation, and orchestrating creative arts and crafts projects, all while consuming a healthy dose of caffeine. I have a passion for supporting social justice and mental health causes."
