Hobbies, Personal Interests, etc.
I enjoy spending time with my kids and my husband. I love to read as well and recently started a book club with some of my friends. It's a blast finally having tme to read for pleasure and not for a board exam of some sort. I also love bowling. My husband and I have bowled on a couples league for some time.

Current Activities, Research, Subspecialty or Professional Interests
I am currenty involved in a few projects aimed at improving our patient and resident experience in our residency practice. I want resident to LOVE going to clinic, which is not the current sentiment. I also love teaching in the clinic. I love our patient population and I love the nurses. I am on various hospital committees, but I truly love my main job which is being program director.
Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids
I have lived in Grand Rapids since 1986 and I have connected with the community here. It is home. My parents are also here and I love the relationship my kids have with their grandparents. I want that bond to continue to grow.
