I was born in Nebraska and raised in Ohio, but have been in Texas for almost 30 years, so I really consider myself a Texan. I knew early in my life that I wanted to care for people and help improve their quality of life. Nursing was a natural fit, and my journey brought me to Texas where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Texas Women’s University in Denton. Later, I expanded my knowledge when I returned to Texas Women’s University to earn a Master of Science-Family Nurse Practitioner degree. I’m thrilled to serve the Denton community as part of the USMD family here at the Denton North Clinic.

I truly enjoy caring for people of all ages, and family medicine allows me to fulfill that passion—tending to newborns, children, teens, adults and seniors. Each stage of life presents different challenges and milestones, and I like being able to help shepherd people through them all.

It’s certainly rewarding meeting and working with people and families from all different backgrounds. Building a bond is so important. I want individuals to feel comfortable talking with me about their health needs and concerns—whatever they may be. When there is trust, we can work together to prevent disease and improve their health so they can enjoy an active, happy life.

When I’m not caring for my patients, I love to read, bake and travel.
