About Me

I have enjoyed living in Jacksonville since I moved from India in 2004. In my free time I enjoy singing, dancing and writing. As an APRN, I believe in the philosophy of offering presence. This means being fully available to my patients, and giving them my undivided attention whenever they come to me. It improves patient trust, enhances patient satisfaction and promotes better health outcomes. Offering presence as a healthcare provider helps in more accurate assessments and tailored treatment plans, improving overall health outcomes.

I currently serve as secretary for the Florida Director and Educational Chair for the National Indian Nurse Practitioner Association of America (NINPAA) and have participated in national chapter meetings as a guest speaker/presenter on hyperlipidemia among other responsibilities. I've also participated as a volunteer at the Hindu Society of Northeast Florida’s free medical camps in collaboration with Care Spot Jacksonville and the Indo-American Medical Association of Northeast Florida. I enjoy remaining a member of several national nurse practitioner associations including AANP and APNA. As a recognized member of the community and a passionate healthcare provider, I am thrilled to be able to provide my services accessibly and easily to clients all over the Florida region.

I also believe that prevention is better than cure, which is why I prioritize health promotion in my practice.
