Who I Am
I was born in Bangor, Maine. My mom was a nurse at an inpatient psychiatric hospital. On the weekends she worked at a Medication Assisted Treatment clinic. She always told me stories about treatment and patient care which led me to recognize my own passion for underserved patients.
Integrated Care and Crisis Intervention
I earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology, and a Doctor of Education from Fielding Graduate University. I have experience as a risk and utilization coordinator at the largest community mental health center in Kansas, and worked with patients in a behavioral health crisis center. I joined Hunter Health in 2017, and was named one of the “Women Who Lead in HealthCare” in 2019 by the Wichita Business Journal.
Why Hunter Health
Hunter Health has a strong integrated care program. We see patients for medical, dental, optometry, and behavioral health in one location. Often, a patient will receive many of those services in the same day. Not only is that easier for the patient; it’s holistic healthcare, and it’s something that everyone who works here is passionate about.
