  • I believe in being an open and nonjudgmental primary care provider and because of that belief, I efficiently and effectively work with marginalized populations. My variety of experience and background allows me to humbly but person-ably relate to my patients on a level that creates understanding and inspires passion for and accountability in forming their own future wellness or improving their participation in managing their diagnoses by shared decision making in selecting and implementing quality, evidence based interventions into their plan of care.

    I balance necessary diagnostic/treatment therapies, income variability and our system's financial accountability and then create affordable/sustainable health delivery options that help eliminate rural health disparities.

    I support the variety of backgrounds and religious beliefs influencing wellness by creating ways to safely integrate holistic practices incorporating religious, cultural and psycho-social preferences of each patient.
    My profession is part of the solution to our nations healthcare crisis. I accept my responsibility as problem solver by being innovative in my approach, openly helping eliminate disparities and skillfully provide patient education which in turn empowers each individual.
    We are the only ones that can make the decisions and act on them in order to promote any type of change.
    All of us together, supporting each other and creating first in ourselves, the change the world needs, can 1 by 1, become a movement. A movement towards sustainable, quality health autonomy and achieving the necessary goal of celebrating individual empowered personal wellness, supporting families and encouraging community health cohesiveness.
    Change ourselves, change our world. Alone and unique, but requiring the help of everyone in our society to celebrate our achievements, encourage recognition of any contributions and putting energy and integrity back into our Nations Health System
