Being your primary care provider is a true honor and privilege! I believe that the effort patients put into presenting themselves for an appointment is valuable. Patients look towards their primary caregiver for solutions and answers to questions that impact their health and their life. Being a good listener and getting to know people individually allows me to understand the impact health issues have on day-to-day functioning. I enjoy listening to people’s life stories and especially challenges that they have overcome. Growing up as a carpenter’s daughter, the foundation is the most important aspect of any structure. Sometimes healthcare can be assimilated to a construction project in that you have to get down to the foundation level of daily habits, lifestyle, family health history, and goals to create a plan of care that works for each individual person. We are all unique!
Growing up watching my Grandmother and Mom selflessly care for others makes being a primary caregiver come naturally. My sister was born with Spina Bifida and my uncle had a traumatic spinal cord injury. I understand the complex needs of patients and what it means to help people live and love life to their fullest capacity. Putting my patients first is my #1 goal! I look forward to working with you!” Karyn
Education and lifelong learning are extremely important to me and my family! In healthcare, there is always something new to learn and share with others.
Throughout my education and career, there were times when thinking outside of the box is necessary to ensure that all options are considered. Commonly referred to as “chasing zebras” in the medical profession, the philosophy of progressive exploration is a concept that is deeply important to me. My husband, Bob, has a rare autoimmune disease called Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, which causes his body to abnormally produce clots. Through his medical work-up and diagnosis, being on the receiving end of healthcare services, gave me a fresh perspective of what it means to be genuinely cared for as a patient and family member of a patient. Caregivers who are willing to take the time to learn, explore, collaborate, and professionally decipher each individual patient’s unique presentation inspired me to be the type of provider who truly has a passion for care!
