What it’s Like to Work with Me
I enjoy working in a variety of patient settings. I have experience in clinical, management, research, and education. A primary focus of mine is holistic health. I focus on educating patients about medications and alternative treatments. I encourage patients to take charge of their own health. I like to create an atmosphere where people feel safe, where clients can build trust with staff. I also like collaborative work relationships. Health is far more than taking medications. I learn about all about patients’ lifestyles in order to help them achieve balance and harmony while attaining their goals. I strive to assist clients in feeling comfortable with themselves, and continue personal growth in their lives. My personal philosophy is we never stop learning and growing. Everyone can always improve.
Co-workers will say they enjoy working with me. They like my sense of humor, creativity, knowledge and experience.
I am the mother of three daughters. I have traveled to numerous countries, including much of Europe, Latin America, Russia, South Korea, Israel and Egypt. I have also served on several mission trips to Honduras with Atlanta-based nonprofit HOI. I taught mental health nursing internationally. I enjoy trying new ethic foods. My passions are my family, cats and traveling. I love to meet residents of other countries and to learn about their culture. Reading is a favorite past time, especially mystery.
In my free time, I enjoy walking, yoga, hiking, reading, and knitting. I hope one day to become a yoga instructor.
