Advanced Practice Providers

Nurse Practitioners (APRNs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) are an important part of the Baptist Health team and help us increase timely access to care.

You'll see these advanced practice providers caring for patients in a variety of medical specialties at doctor's offices, hospitals, outpatient centers and emergency rooms. They have advanced medical education and work closely with physicians to diagnose and treat patients, and even prescribe medication.

About Me

I spent my early career in Connecticut, where I lived with my husband and our two girls. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our girls, as well as playing volleyball together. The Sunshine State will bring all new adventures for our family.

My philosophy of care is to treat every patient as though they are family. It is important to acknowledge that although we deal with these things on a daily basis, patients do not, and it is normal to be anxious. It is a privilege to make every patient understand their health, empowering them and providing guidance along the way.
