We are pleased to present the next in our weekly series introducing you to Internal Medicine’s Advanced Practice Providers. In addition to sharing information about where they work in the department, we asked them each to tell us a little bit about their “Why” (the sustaining pull for their work) and what relaxes them. (Read previous weeks’ installments.)

My “WHY”: I simply try to give my best in doing procedures for each one of our patients—many of whom are going through their greatest challenge in this life.
What Relaxes Me: being out in nature—whether it’s hiking, biking or walking our two dogs
