Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“I am passionate about providing compassionate, individualized care in a supportive environment. I will meet you where you’re at on your journey! My work is grounded in the principles of reproductive justice, embracing all walks of identity (gender, sexual orientation, and diverse ways of being) with cultural humility. I believe holistic care, centered on community, is essential in promoting positive, sustainable change in us as individuals and the families we belong to. Wholeheartedness, active listening, empathy, joy, and kindness are a few of my valued qualities. I am inspired by the commitment, resilience, and strength I see in the community I am proud to be a part of at Hennepin Healthcare.”
