Degrees, Training and Certificates: I received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Atlantic Union College, South Lancaster Massachusetts, and a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts. I completed a 1-year interdisciplinary palliative care fellowship at Brigham and Women’s/Dana Farber Cancer Institute and hold a certification in hospice and palliative nursing.

Family, Hobbies and Interests: My husband and I live in Anne Arundel County; we both love to travel and experience new places, people and cultures. I enjoy cooking, reading, exploring Maryland’s many beautiful state parks, being anywhere there is water, and time with my friends and 3 of my beautiful God-children who live nearby.
Practice Philosophy: My practice philosophy is that everyone is a child of God and should be treated with the utmost care and respect. My aim is to treat each patient as I would want my loved ones to be treated. I believe that having compassionate, honest conversations about their hopes and goals in the face of life-limiting illnesses empowers patients to live as well as they can for as long as they can. I want patients and their families to know that I am deeply invested in their care, comfort and the quality of their lives and will employ the skills of our interdisciplinary supportive care team to help meet their needs.
