I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in diabetes care. I am dedicated to working with my patients to develop realistic treatment plans which may include medications, nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction. As an advocate for insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring system, I stay on trend with the latest technology available to individuals with diabetes. I work at Wasatch Internal Medicine in Salt Lake City, Utah and see patients both in the clinic and house call setting. This blog represents my thoughts and in no way represents my employer.
I envisioned and co-developed the Diabetes Mixer with MJ Tran. The Diabetes Mixer is a social networking event for young adults with type 1 diabetes in Salt Lake City, Utah. Click here to link to the Diabetes Mixer page on Facebook.
I received my undergraduate degree from Weber State University and Master’s degree from the University of Utah. I am currently enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Utah Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence to research the role of online social networking among individuals with diabetes. I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau International, Golden Key International Honour Society, Utah Nurse Practitioners, and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
