“My role as a diabetes nurse educator is collaborative with our physicians and patients to educate, problem-solve and provide ongoing support to our pre-diabetic and diabetic patient population. Diabetes self-management can be overwhelming. My goal is to make patients feel comfortable enough to reach out without hesitation and encourage, empower and engage them in their diabetes self-care and management. I am rewarded every day by our physicians and patients who appreciate and trust my guidance and availability.”

“I have been practicing in New Haven for 15 years and have been affiliated with Northeast Medical Group for the past five. NEMG has afforded me a supportive environment to grow and perform to the best of my abilities, and I have derived immense satisfaction from the wonderful relationships I have with my patients. It has been my personal mission to provide excellent patient-centered and individualized care to each child and family in my practice. The atmosphere of respect and empathy has made me, and my families, feel safe and secure.”

“I believe that when you provide outstanding care and a great work environment, you develop the eagerness to advance and set trends. Winning this award would not have been possible without the inspiration I have received from my seniors and my colleagues, for whom I have the deepest respect. My passion has always been to help others and be a part of something greater, and working at NEMG has allowed me to do just that.”
