“Truly my passion is rural family medicine. I enjoy it because you have to know a little bit about everything. There are challenges every day in family practice and nothing is ever the same. Each day presents new challenges and learning opportunities. It gives me the opportunity to develop deep relationships with my patients and be present for their most joyful and difficult moments,” she said.
