In her own words,
"My favorite thing about being a Nurse Practitioner student is learning to provide primary care to my patients. The biggest challenge of my career is the lack of interdisciplinary collaboration when providing care to patients.
Professional style is important to me because it is a way for me to express myself while being distinguished. I feel style is a visual resume, it often gives a first impression of who I am."
