Get To Know Me

What led you to Health Care at RVPT? 

Working in the Clifton office gave me flexibility to also be at home with my kids when I needed to be.  The Part time position was what I needed as a mom with 4 kids.

What is something people may be surprised to learn about you?

 I love the ocean and river. I love to water ski and set a personal goal for myself to water ski at least once a year.

What would your perfect afternoon off include?

My perfect afternoon off would find me boating at the Lake with my family and swimming. We'd end the day with a bike ride and a night of tasty snacks and playing games as a family.
