About

Bio

I practice pain medicine because it allows me to personalize treatment options to offer meaningful functional pain relief. This keeps me conscious of the brain's ability for positive adaptability. Thus the rewards of varied therapeutics on patients allow for less distress about the reality of medical business. I live in a small coastal town, so neighbors are patients. The gap is still being bridged between doing specialized injections one day and participating in local theater and boating on another. I have always used humor to get through, when the kids come home we spend the first days laughing at life!! Born a woman, will die a doctor.
