Abridged Life Story

I like to tell people that I grew up in a bar… Truth be told, I was raised in a small town in the Catskill mountains of upstate New York where my family owned and operated a combination restaurant /bar/hotel.

From age 12, I worked in the restaurant doing everything from cutting the grass to waiting tables (and eventually tending the bar). This taught me a lot about hard work, serving people, and chatting with people from all walks of life.

In college, I gravitated toward healthcare as I loved science and wanted to help people. Looking back, I see that working in healthcare is a lot like the restaurant business – in terms of serving others, work ethic, and hours. I grew up telling myself I would not work weekends and holidays as an adult… Oh well, you do what you love, right?

I’ve spent most of my nursing career in the ICU or operating room. It was an incredible challenge and allowed me to make a big impact on people’s lives. At the same time, I have always been drawn to the preventative side of medicine. I’m ecstatic to use my prior skills alongside Dr. Haas and help individuals optimize their health and overall wellness.
