I chose medicine as my profession because of a deep desire to help people and make a positive impact in their lives. As an urgent care provider, I never know what is going to happen on a shift. From sniffles to heart attacks, we get it all in our office, so we never have the same day twice.
My medical philosophy is to treat each patient as an individual. Medicine has evolved from a paternalistic model to a collaborative effort. Because of this, I believe provider-patient communication is key to improved health and well-being.
In my life outside work, most of my time is spent with my two daughters. Together we go to movies, museums, plays and libraries. We enjoy hiking, biking and playing at parks. I also have a love for personal fitness and enjoy spending free time at the gym.
In addition to English, I also speak French and Tahitian.
