About Me

Providing resources and guidance however I can, I strive to help patients make informed decisions about their health, and encourage them to play an active role in their care plans.

As a nurse, I bring experience in pediatric, adult and geriatric care. I work closely with physicians to provide primary care to patients of all ages, and I love making a difference in the lives of my patients.

I spent the majority of my childhood in Shawano and am excited to serve such a great community.
