Why did you become a health care provider?

When I was in high school, my appendix ruptured. My case was quite serious; it was touch and go for a while. When I woke up, there was a tube down my throat and I was scared and fought it. One of the staff saw the struggle and explained the tube to me. As I began to understand what it was and how it worked, I was no longer as scared and began to relax. I ended up spending 2 weeks in the hospital. After this terrifying experience, I wanted to understand what had happened to me and I wanted to be there for other people to alleviate their fears just as someone had done for me.

My mentors helped me to develop and get to where I am now. Working at Beu allows for me to give back in many ways including being a mentor for others.

One thing that people may not know about you?

I am a collector of old time radio programs, Lincoln books and Lincoln pennies.
An interesting fact about my family is that my grandmother had a maternity home running out of her house from 1943-1958. 27 different communities utilized her maternity home and more than 300 babies were delivered there. Because of the time period, I did not find out that this existed until after I had completed medical school.
