What Attracted Me to Medicine:
I wanted to be a doctor since the age of six. I was attracted to osteopathic medicine in particular because of the ability to utilize my hands and make a patient feel better immediately without waiting for medications to ‘kick in.’

Specialty:
Osteopathic Manual Medicine

Conditions I Treat:

  • Musculoskeletal concerns
  • Cranial considerations (headache, sinuses, vertigo, otitis)
  • Women’s health
  • General wellness

How Osteopathic Manual Medicine Can Benefit Patients:
The musculoskeletal system is the largest in the body and can mirror internal organ concerns before the patient becomes aware of them. By examining the entire body, I am able to pick up on these concerns before they become a problem and treat before it becomes a chronic illness for the patient.

How I Spend My Free Time:
Reading mystery novels, traveling and spending quiet time with family and pets, just relaxing.

Fun Fact:
I love to use power tools and build/remodel.

Health Advice to Live By:
Find what feels and works best for you and capitalize on it to keep yourself happy and healthy.
