What I like best about working at Middlesex...

I choose to work at Middlesex because of the people. Residents and Faculty work as a team with nurses, staff, and specialists in a collegial, respectful way that centers on providing outstanding, safe, and well-coordinated care for our patients. It is important to like the environment and people you work with. I get energy from coming to work every morning, even when the workday continues into the night or next day. 

My favorite thing to do with residents is...

I love working with our residents in the hospital. Caring for all of our patients admitted from the 3 offices, our own obstetrical patients and newborns, as well as our patients requiring evaluations in the Emergency Department makes these weeks both challenging and fun. It's a time to work with the residents on a one-on-one basis to provide care, learn together, and spend time discussing the challenges of residency, medicine and life.

What I do for fun...

As the mother of a 3 year old, I spend much of my time outside of work playing with him and doing family activities such as swimming, fishing, and walking at Hubbard Park. When I have time to myself, I enjoy crocheting and sewing. My specialty is making Sock Monkeys!
