My philosophy of care is to accept people for who they are, listen to their needs and provide treatment in a way that is respectful of their beliefs and wishes. I have a laid-back personality and really enjoy talking with – and getting to know – so many different patients. One of the things that drew me to family medicine was the variety. Every day brings something different. I spent 17 years working in the ER and I’m grateful for that experience as it taught me so much about nursing.
