With more than 20 years of diversified nursing experience primarily working with children, I have found my greatest pleasure and passion serving in my current role as a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC). After completing my graduate studies and becoming a Nurse Practitioner at Gonzaga University in 2018, I joined the Excelsior team.
My services include psychiatric medication management, diagnostic clarification, and utilization of psychotherapy techniques. As a Center of Excellence Provider, I can diagnose and treat Autism Spectrum Disorder. I believe in providing patient-centered, individualized care. I foster the philosophy that every person can achieve their maximum potential with the right support in place. I focus on a positive, strength-based approach that considers the many factors that make us who we are.
I was born and raised on the east coast, in New Jersey and moved to Spokane in 2008. My personal interests include spending time exploring the beauty of the outdoors with my two children, husband, and four dogs. We enjoy hiking, camping, and boating. I also avidly practice yoga.
