“Fairfax Family Practice embraces all patients and clinicians while delivering expert patient care. I learn from and with my patients every day. It is important to me as a Family Nurse Practitioner to continuously learn and stay up to date with new practice recommendations. My personal philosophy includes improving patient outcomes and providing evidence based care while respecting each patient’s perceptions, experiences, and autonomy. Caring for patients requires open communication, empathy, and respect so that wellness and quality of life can be maintained.”
