Making an Impact

"I entered the health care profession to make a difference in people's lives. Cardiovascular disease is present to some degree in all families, including my own. I strive to treat my patients like family, to provide personalized care and form lasting relationships."

Dedication to Patients

"I began my career at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. My work included overnight management of all flavors of cardiac patients and I was able to garner experience in general cardiology, structural heart disease, cardiac surgery, heart failure, and electrophysiology. When I joined San Diego Cardiac Center, I discovered I thoroughly enjoyed working in the outpatient clinical environment. It has allowed me to get to know my patients well and help them understand their condition. Teaching my patients to make wise choices leading to better health and seeing them improve along their journey is extremely rewarding."
