I began my nursing career in 2014, after I graduated from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I knew at a very young age that caring for others would be my calling. I chose nursing because I am compassionate, empathetic, caring, honest, loyal, and dedicated. These qualities come natural to me as I believe that my main purpose in life is to care for others. Most individuals describe me as self-less and hard working. I have cared for patients of all age groups. I truly believe one of the most important things we can do is to build ourselves back up, and come back even stronger.

I practice psychopharmacology or psychiatric medicine. This is an expanding field, as new medications are developed and we continuously refine our understanding of their use. New technologies can help optimize the choice of medication for each individual. In my practice I see adolescents, young adults, those in middle age, and seniors. Many of those I help have mood instability, including depression and mood swings, intermittent or constant anxiety, or problems with focus, concentration, and productivity. I help individuals who have suffered a sudden terrible loss or trauma, as well as those who have a chronic history of failed relationships.
