Q: What prompted you to enter the medical field?
I knew from the time I was a little girl starting pretend IVs on my dolls that I would work in healthcare at some capacity. My first “real” job was in the radiology department at Bloomington Hospital. As my exposure to healthcare grew so did my interests and pursuit for education. I worked my way through the ranks from a file room clerk to a nurse practitioner. I love that I am able to give my services back to my local community.
Q: What does success on any given day, look like to you?
Success changes throughout the day on any given day! At the end of the day success is simply knowing that I did my best work at every task I encountered.
Q: What has been your most memorable medical moment?
My most memorable medical moment was when a patient scheduled an appointment with me to discuss a recent screening test she had completed. When I walked into the room she burst into tears, gave me a hug, and told me that the test I had ordered for her detected an early stage cancer. The cancer was removed and the patient was doing very well. She expressed great gratitude and stated that had I not been persistent with recommending this preventative screening she would have never had it done and feared that the outcome may have been much different.
