I am grateful to be a medical provider at NECFM because It allows me to not only practice internal medicine but also explore exercise physiology, nutrition, and naturopathy. Before becoming a Physician Assistant, I was a support provider for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. During this experience, I learned that health and well-being require a personalized approach. It is my goal as a clinician to provide individualized care that is creative and evidence-based.

As a functional medicine physician, I know that optimal health and balanced living is a realistic goal for every human being at every stage of life. Because of this, I am dedicated to assisting my patients in reaching their full potential in order to pursue life to the fullest. I help guide patients through foundational and personalized approaches to health that focus on dietary guidelines, activity regimens, stress management and sleep management that are specifically designed for each patient. Each personalized health and wellness plan takes into account the five foundational imbalances: Nutrition, Metabolism, Inflammation, Detoxification and Oxidation.

My philosophy has always been lifestyle modification before medication. I have said on numerous occasions to patients in different settings “I want to be your healthcare provider, not your pharmacist.”
I have found that in my career that there will always be a need for traditional western medicine. However, I am grateful that my eyes have been opened to the benefits of lifestyle and functional medicine. This style of medicine has played a larger role in my attitude regarding focusing on the way of life changes versus prescribing medications. It also has enhanced my entire role as a provider.
