Though patients may share the same diagnosis, she recognizes that each person has individual needs and wants to use her unique "hands-on" experience to better serve you and your lifestyle. "I want to provide you with the education you need to reduce the control that pain can have on your life." Like many parents of young children she spends her spare time juggling the needs of her family.
