Q. What is your area of medical expertise?
A. Family Nurse Practitioner, Certified Holistic Nurse
Q. What is your role at Table Health?
A. I am a Primary Care Provider and a Holistic Health Consultant. I also host educational workshops, dinners, and events.
Q. What does a typical visit look like with you?
A. During the initial visit I will review your past medical history, any supplements/medications you are currently taking, any current health concerns and discuss your health goals. I will do a complete physical exam and create a plan of care and provide tools/resources to help you achieve your goals.
Q. How do you treat and care for your patients?
A. Each patient has a different health story and thus requires an individualized approach to health and healing. With a personalized care plan, a patient is treated and cared for in a manner which best suits their needs for optimal health outcomes.
Q. What makes your approach to health different?
A. A holistic approach to care allows me to hear a patient’s story and create a plan of care that addresses not only symptom management but also includes appropriate referrals, tools and resources to live a healthier, fuller life
Q. What health trends excite you the most?
A. Preventative health excites me the most because it not only limits excessive healthcare costs, but it also helps patients live healthier lives.
Q. Who do you follow in the medical, health/wellness community? Why?
A. I follow many healthcare providers for support but I also follow farmers, local artists and merchants because I feel as though strong community support is important and can be mutually beneficial in building healthier communities.
Q. How do you spend your free time?
A. Free time can be hard to come by. Therefore, I make sure I schedule in my “play time” by training for and competing in mountain bike races. This requires long, beautiful road bike rides in the counties and training alongside some amazing athletes here in Traverse City
Q. What book did you last read?
A. The Good Fight- A story of Cancer, Love and Triumph by Karen Roth and Greg Holmes
Q. What do you love about Traverse City?
A. Art, music, farms, lakes, community… what is not to love?
Q. Why did you choose this profession?
A. Compassion is an understatement in the nursing profession. The moment I realized I could help another human in need was the moment I knew I was meant to be a nurse. It is the most rewarding, fulfilling career and I am honored to be able to serve our rural community.
