    Additional Information

    I began working at Somerville Women’s Health Center in 1992 as a nurse practitioner student, and never left. I am drawn to women’s healthcare because I enjoy listening to the histories of my patients while helping them realize healthy and fulfilling lives.

    In addition to being a women’s health nurse practitioner I am a certified yoga instructor. I have a holistic view of women’s health, believing that biological, psychological, and social factors all play a significant role in wellness; I try to bring this perspective to every patient visit.

    I appreciate the unique role that nurse practitioners bring to women’s health, particularly their advocacy for putting patient’s needs first. For many years I was the co-chair of the Cambridge Health Alliance Nurse Practitioner group. I also enjoy training nurse practitioner students. I find that teaching keeps my practice current and motivates me to continue learning. When I am not at work, I enjoy my personal yoga practice, biking, walking with friends and spending time with my family.
