Acerca de mí
I was born in Denver, Colorado and moved quite a bit as my father was in the Air Force. I was the only girl in my family, with three older brothers and one younger brother. Since I was five years old, I wanted to be a nurse. I moved to Atlanta in 1989 after graduating from the Medical College of Georgia with a bachelor's of science that enabled me to be a physician assistant (PA). I have worked in many areas of medicine in my three decades of being a PA including: General Surgery, Neurosurgery, Emergency Medicine and Radiology. I have been blessed with the opportunity to follow my dream of helping others to take care of their needs.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
Radiology means x-rays. Today many organs, functions, and areas that used to be hidden from view can now be imaged and studied in-depth with new radiological procedures, equipment, and technology.
The benefits of this technology to patients are many. In some cases, earlier diagnosis dramatically improves the patient's chances of recovery. In other cases, radiologic procedures eliminate the need for exploratory surgery, thus reducing risk, recovery time and expense. Being a PA means that I work closely with my supervising radiologist to perform various image guided procedures that have been ordered by our referring physicians to help make correct diagnoses for our members. I believe there should be respect, care, and compassion shown to each patient that comes in for a radiology procedure.
Cómo vivo bien
Although taking care of patients is one of my passions, my greatest love and joy is spending time with my loving son. I love being his mother. I love to cook for him, which is one way I thrive. He loves to eat, so I have become very passionate about nutrition and food. I love to shop the local farmers markets, getting the best fruits and vegetables that are in season. I love to be outside, walking our dog and watching my son play soccer. I consider myself spiritual and blessed. Being a part of Kaiser Permanente has allowed me to achieve a happy work-life balance. It gives me time, which is the most precious thing one could have.
