Fairbanks Memorial Hospital

She found it important to make a difference in the lives of others and found that with training, experience, evidence based treatment plans and lots of heart, her healing ability could change lives. She views her work as service rather than help because to her service allows each person to learn from the interaction. She is grateful and excited to be of service to the Fairbanks community.
