Q: What do you like best about New Horizon so far?

A: I love the positive energy!


Q: Why did you start working in this field?

A: My reasons for choosing this field are very personal.  I have struggled with obesity my entire life. Two years ago, I adopted a healthy lifestyle for what felt like my millionth attempt. Today, I feel stronger and more confident than I ever have!  As I get older, I realize that my health does not only affect myself.  When I was 12-years-old, my mother died suddenly of a heart attack. This came as a shock to my entire family, and growing up without her was incredibly difficult. I want to live a long, full, healthy life so that I can be around for my family.  I want to help my patients feel great and to also be around longer for their families.

Q: What’s your favorite movie/tv show?

A:  I can’t pick only one! My favorite shows are New Girl, Bold Type, and Handmaids Tale.
