Why did you become a healthcare provider?

I decided to embark on a career as a nurse practitioner due to my deep commitment to the care and treatment of those under my care. Throughout my education, I discovered that nursing resonated with me the most, prompting me to further my professional journey by obtaining my nurse practitioner license.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice? 

Community health centers offer a wide range of primary care and preventive services to a diverse patient base. As a practitioner, I value the chance to address not just physical health but also mental and social well-being. This holistic approach enables us to create a significant and positive impact on the lives of our patients.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients? 

I approach my patients holistically, taking into account not just their physical health but also their emotional well-being. I see each patient as a complete individual, acknowledging that their health is shaped by factors such as family dynamics, community support, and personal circumstances.
