Treatments & Services:
My goal is to continue to work with clients in developing a tailored diabetes management strategy with an emphasis on developing and achieving individual goals. I look forward to educating my clients in the latest advances in diabetes medicine and technology and enabling the client to build on their own knowledge and skills. My focus is to allow the patient to see the big picture living with diabetes and empowering them to take control rather than diabetes controlling their life.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Spending time outdoors, rowing, biking, fishing and cross country skiing.
