Foot Care Nurse, LPN
Why I do this: Being an active person (I love hiking and running), I know it’s important that my feet are comfortable. When my feet hurt, it slows me down. Sometimes we don’t realize how important feet are until they begin hurting. As a nurse, I believe that feet are at the base of good health and an active lifestyle.
Daily Ritual: Every morning, while everyone is still asleep, I make myself an espresso and read the newspaper.
What Makes Me Tick: Seeing how happy my patients are after treatments. It really motivates me to try and make a difference in their lives through foot care.
Little Known Fact: I was a Civil Engineer in Russia.
Words to Live By: I believe in treating people like I want to be treated- with respect and kindness.
