Provider Bio

When I was a young girl, I saw a donation box with pictures of famished families and little kids on it. I asked my mom, who are these kids? Why are they on the box? And she answered with, “Those people and kids need us! They need our help!”

Since then, my goal has been to help people in every way I can. I grew up in the Tri-cities for the majority of my life, then left for Oklahoma to attend Oral Roberts University and receive my Bachelor's in Nursing. When I decided to come back home to the Tri-Cities, I went back to school at Washington State University and studied for my Master’s in nursing to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

I’ve been serving as a nurse for 20 years, then as a primary NP in┬áthe Tri-Cities community for 14 years and have loved every minute.

When I think back on those words my mom told me, I’m reminded of my purpose in our community: to help others and give them hope.

When you walk into my exam room, you will be surrounded by an unconditional and nonjudgmental environment. I see my patients as a whole and want to ensure that they receive the CARE they need.
