“I view good health as a basic human right every one deserves to enjoy the benefit of. As a health care provider, I am excited to work in partnership with anyone seeking to improve their health using both the science of Western medicine, as well as more natural approaches, in the manner that best serves them.
I am overjoyed to return to serve the community of the North Bay after almost 20 years of diverse experiences from the Pacific Islands, South America, to Afghanistan. My journeys have provided perspective, enabling me to appreciate uniqueness of this community I am so fortunate and honored to serve and be a part of again!”
