WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
View less contact information View all contact information
Helping patients make informed decisions about cardiovascular care, while encouraging them to maintain a healthy lifestyle, is what I love most about my clinical work. In addition to patient care, I am engaged in research on patient preferences, quality of life, geriatrics, and aging, and stable ischemic heart disease. Outside of work, I enjoy activities with my husband and three children, whether it is at a school or sporting event, a family camping trip, or another type of adventure. I also enjoy running trails and downhill skiing.
