Years of experience: 28
Lives in: Lackawanna
Why I became a nurse:
I love people. Caring for women and bringing life into the world has been an amazing experience and priviledge.
What I like best about primary care:
Being able to have consistency and build relationships with my patients by seeing them through their pregnancy.
Care to my patients means:
Staying updated on all of the information in prenatal care so I can give the best care possible to my patients. To be approachable so that my patients are comfortable discussing any and all of their concerns.
One of my most memorable experiences in primary care was:
Delivering a breech baby over the phone.
My prenatal care philosophy is:
Knowledge is power. Every pregnant woman should be cared for body and soul – the whole woman.
Being a healthy woman means:
Giving yourself permission to put yourself first, so you can be healthy in every way.
I try to make my patients healthy overall by:
Letting them know when they are healthy emotionally, mentally. The people in their life will be better also (spouse, children, etc.).
