About me

I was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Penn. I always wanted to be a nurse, which may have been because my mother had breast cancer when I was a child. She was a 22-year survivor, but eventually died from a recurrence of the cancer. My experiences with her death led me to pursue an advanced nursing degree and become a family nurse practitioner, where I would eventually specialize in palliative care. My father had Alzheimer's dementia before he died, so I also have a special place in my heart for geriatric patients, especially those with dementia. During the summers when I was growing up, my family would travel with my father, as he traveled for his job. This has carried over into my adult life, and my husband and I love to explore new places and cultures. And I love to capture those memories with my camera! We have no children, but we do care for a wonderful cat, although the cat prefers my husband over me!

About my practice

I work for Kaiser Permanente because I believe in the value of integrated health care services to promote wellness, prevent illness and provide high-quality care when illness does occur. The Geriatric and Palliative Care Departments are committed to promoting the best quality of life for our members of advanced age or serious illness. We focus on more than just the medical needs of the member, as we approach care in a holistic way with the support of doctors, chaplains, nurses, pharmacists and social workers, which are all easily accessible. We also provide home visits to home-bound patients. We believe it is important to help our members have as much information as needed to make health care decisions consistent with their values and be able to plan for what lies ahead, as well as have a voice in all their health care decisions, even when they may not be able to speak for themselves.

How I thrive

Until I returned to Kaiser Permanente in August 2015, my career was based in the hospital setting. Making my transition to the outpatient setting has helped me thrive mentally as I am learning new skills and practicing in a new way. I love my job, so it does not feel like work to me. Physically, I feel best when I exercise each day, but like many people, I find it challenging to achieve this. I try to walk, attend spin classes or go hiking with my husband whenever possible. My faith is important to maintaining my mental and spiritual health, and I am active in the choir at church (although I do not like to sing alone). I also joined a group of singers to serenade the members of an assisted living residence once a quarter.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
