Practice Philosphy

My philosophy is to practice from a health promotion and prevention perspective. Why wait to get sick to make your health a priority? Be proactive; living a healthy life is what I will strive to help you do. When you book your appointment with me you can be assured that your health and well being are my main concern.

About Me

I was raised in Rocky Mountain House and had a great childhood growing up here. I chose to do my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner Program at the University of Victoria. I have worked as a Nurse Practitioner for 11 years.

I have two children who attend school in Rocky Mountain House and are actively involved in various sports programs in our community. The activities I enjoy the most are travelling with my children, swimming and relaxing at Crimson Lake with my family in the summer and skiing in the mountains in the winter.

Philosophy of Care

I will be on time for your appointment; your time is equally as important as my time.

• You will be seen in a comfortable, relaxed setting, free from crowded waiting rooms.

• I will listen to your concerns and provide honest, educated feedback after a thorough examination.

• I will be diligent at reviewing and following up on any lab work or testing that I may have ordered for you.

• All of your information will be held with the highest degree of confidentiality.

• You are important and your health is important.

 

What to Expect

I provide complete physical examinations for females of any age. If you are over 40 years of age, your appointment will incorporate a detailed review of your family history, review of your previous health history, a complete examination, ordering of testing in accordance with screening guidelines, medication renewal (if applicable) and one follow-up appointment to review testing that was done.

If you are a woman younger than age 40, you still need to ensure that your health is a priority. I provide physical exams appropriate for age, lifestyle and in accordance with screening guidelines. Your prescriptions can also be renewed at this time.

If you are a teenager or young adult, I provide counseling about health and healthy relationships, high risk behaviors, screening for STIs, PAP testing and discussion and/or renewal of birth control.
