        My 12+ years of patient service have taught me the importance of active listening, empathy, patience, and connecting with others. I am interested in exploring other fields of medicine such as integrative nutrition, anti-aging, and preventative medicine. I am working to broaden my knowledge in these fields. 
       I am patient, empathetic, understanding, and work diligently to serve my patients in a full care setting. I have a strong work ethic and high integrity and will rise to the highest level of expectation.  I look to maximize my skills among other physicians with whom I work and learn from their knowledge in order to improve my own knowledge base. I look forward to working with others in the fields of Osteopathy, Integrative and Family Medicine.
