My interest in the field of Reproductive Medicine stems from my own journey with infertility. As a patient undergoing IVF treatment while studying to become a Nurse Practitioner I was forever changed by the care I received from every person throughout my multiple year journey to build my family. I knew as a provider I wanted to give back to the community what had been given to me. I saw firsthand how a warm greeting when you walk into an office or an empathetic nurse delivering bad news can change the tone of your treatment.
I maintain the practice of holistic health when it comes to my personal practice by supporting fertility through overall wellness. My goal for my patients is setting an expectation that every patient feels supported, informed, and prepared, when dealing with the emotional and physical challenges Infertility can bring into their lives.
I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a special interest in reproductive health and fertility preservation. Before becoming a Nurse Practitioner I worked as a Registered Nurse for over 5 years in an acute care setting in Boston. Originally from Rochester, NY I graduated summa cum laude with my Bachelor of Nursing Science from the University of Rochester and graduated summa cum laude with my Masters of Nursing Science from Northeastern University in Boston. I am an active member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
