Why She Loves Being a Provider
“The drive to care for others has always been a piece of who I am. It was my motivation to seek a career in health care and the reason I love my job. When I was a child I remember having to create a timeline for the next 20 years of my life in school. It always culminated in me becoming a doctor. I love developing relationships with my patients and watching their health improve.”
