“For I know the plans I have for you … ” says Jeremiah 29:11. I grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
assuming I’d go into nursing but with my father’s encouragement, I began my studies in pre-med at
Eastern Mennonite College in Harrisonburg, Virginia. A desire to provide compassionate care and truly
make a difference carried me through medical school at Temple University in Philadelphia, Family
Practice Residency at Lancaster General Hospital and an Obstetrics fellowship at Harrisburg Hospital, all
in Pennsylvania.

After my training was complete, I moved cross-country to Texas to join the faculty of a new Christian
Family Practice Residency Program at Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen. My husband and I
made our home on the border for over a decade. Participating in the lives and training of young
doctors who now practice medicine around the globe was a rare privilege.

When we were ready to leave the Rio Grande Valley, we were both surprised and blessed to find the Hill
Country and Cornerstone Clinic, and the opportunity to serve with a group of well respected, Christian
doctors. We are also privileged to be a part of the Heritage School community, where my husband is an
administrator and teacher. Outside of medicine, I enjoy playing violin and piano, camping and spending
time with my family and our animals.

Each day is a new adventure in medicine; each patient a unique individual. I enjoy the variety of family
medicine and I continue to provide full-spectrum care, including pregnancy care and delivering babies,
caring for children, teens, and adults of all ages, and participating in both hospital medicine and nursing
home care. “As long as you open your eyes in the morning, God has a purpose for you to be here” is
something I’ve said to many of my patients. My goal is to provide excellent medical care with a
personal touch to assist my patients to achieve true well ness; not just the absence of disease, but a
healthy body, mind and soul, so they can reach their God-given potential. Jeremiah 20:11 goes on to
say, “••• plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope.” My purpose is
to know and share that hope with those God brings into my path each day.
