My title is “PA” which officially stands for Physician Assistant. However, I feel that these letters also represent my role as a Patient Advocate. One of my goals is to empower patients to manage their symptoms through self care. Along with the other providers and staff at Capital Region Integrative Pain Center, I hope to be a resource to help patients discover the best combination of management strategies to fit their individual needs and symptoms.
I am in awe of the complexity of the human body, being comprised of the many interconnected organ systems. No organ system functions in isolation. This is why I believe in an integrative approach to health management that evaluates factors such as nutritional status, unmanaged stress, emotional health, sleep quality, exercise and ergonomics.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. I am always looking for ways to expand my professional and personal knowledge through reading and listening to audiobooks. I have many athletic and artistic interests, including rock climbing, snowboarding, knitting, painting, and playing guitar.
