If I had to give my patients a token of what best describes my talent as a nurse practitioner, it would be cashmere gloves. Patients say I have a soft touch, a gentle approach and I always use my hands (and mind) to provide the best care possible. When not at work, I enjoy great dining, cooking, long walks, concerts, games, travel, camping, movies and TV with my husband and friends; anything with my dog or 4 nephews; and quiet time cross-stitching, rubberstamping and paper crafts.
