I am passionate about knowledge and personal empowerment in health care. I believe that the more knowledge a person has about their own body, how it works and how to keep it healthy, the better choices they are able to make. I carry this belief in my professional practice and strive to enrich every patient I encounter with a deeper understanding of their own health. My interest in health information technology naturally flows from the desire to engage patients in their own care.
On the personal side, I am passionate about living an examined life. I believe that reflecting on life’s experiences leads to a happier, more fulfilled life and is also an avenue for personal growth. One of the ways I reflect upon my life is to write about it.
I have a deep love of music with an eclectic taste running the gamut of musical genres. Whether playing the piano or plugging into the ipod, I surround myself with good music as much as possible.
I am an avid runner and continue to set personal goals for myself. Running is not only part of what I do for my physical health but also helps clear my mind and focus my energy.
I love good literature and a good novel just as much! Medical journals, blogs, health IT sites….I constantly have articles and several books on the go. Continual learning is part of my nature.
I have, in the past seven years, either full time or part time home schooled my three sons. This has given me invaluable time with them and incredible insight into how they learn. It also keeps me challenged and engaged in their learning. I am involved in Alternative Education as well as the Public school system and have a deep respect and love for the field.
I am a prairie girl who married a prairie boy who continues to inspire and challenge me. I still find awe in the blooming canola and wide open sky and love the freedom of the endless landscape.
Thanks for stopping by.
