New & Established Patients Call

My goal is to help each individual understand their diagnosis and treatment plan. I believe it is very important to take the time to sit and listen to concerns, and together discuss recommendations for optimal care. Wound and ostomy care needs to be highly individualized to assure success; I enjoy getting to know patients and their families and figuring out how a plan of care can restore a better state of health.

Biography

I have been a healthcare provider since 1998. My nursing experience includes emergency care, radiology, wound, ostomy, and diabetic foot care. I obtained national board certification in wound, ostomy and foot care in 2013. I transitioned to the advanced practice nursing role in 2015 after completing my master's degree and achieving board certification as a family nurse practitioner. In December 2018 I completed my Doctorate of Nursing Practice and completed a project with special focus on biofilm management in wound beds.
