The best thing about my job is helping patients and their families get through their surgeries. It can be a very scary time for patients, and my job is to make this a better experience through knowledge, support, humor and the best care I can give.

I help patients by offering support, knowledge and access to a team of great providers at all levels to help them get through surgery.

My colleagues and I work side by side every day. We can do anything when we work together.

The biggest joy I get from work is knowing that I helped patients feel comfortable during a difficult time. It’s a gratifying experience when they return for a visit and tell me that I helped them feel at ease. I have a passion for what I do, and I love learning new ways to help.

I feel that I am optimistic, approachable and always willing to take on a challenge. There is a lot to navigate in health care, and a teamwork approach goes a long way. I consider myself very lucky to work with the group we have here in General Surgery. I’m grateful to have co-workers who work well with each other and can anticipate the needs of others.
