Advanced Practice Provider Week: Promoting Wellness

I started my career as a Nurse Practitioner after being an RN for eight years. Although I loved being a bedside nurse, I felt there was more I could do to help promote wellness before patients came to the hospital. I have been in my current family practice in Ft Mitchell, Ky., for more than seven years and couldn't be happier! Not only do I love the provider role, but I love being a part of my patients' lives. In some cases I take care of as many as four generations of one family. It is truly an honor to become this involved in their lives. I enjoy seeing them progress and improve their health and their personal lives. I have seen many of them get married, have babies (then I get to take care of the babies 😊 ), lose loved ones, graduate college and more. This privilege is not something I take lightly. It is a massive responsibility with huge reward and I am so grateful. The Christ Hospital has allowed me the opportunity to build my practice and take care of my patients the way I had always envisioned. It is truly a dream come true.

I am blessed to have a family who is very supportive of my career. My husband and four children keep me busy when I am not in the office with soccer, basketball, hiking, travel and anything else they can think of!
