About Us

newest-officeMy Adult Medical Practice is based upon Advanced Nursing skills; advanced training in traditional medical and nursing sciences and complementary/holistic methods. I see the patient as a whole person instead of merely an assortment of disconnected parts. The physical body is an intricate system every part a specialty in itself;  strategically wired to make the whole work is still a mystery. I am committed to lifelong learning to understand the webbing of these systems and their triggers which help uncover the real issues of illness. However thanks to my foundational training as a nurse I also am well versed in the family, cultural and social aspects of illness and health which affect each patient; what may hinder or help them in their journey. I eagerly engage in connection with my patients! It is not uncommon that I may challenge or follow up with them like they were ‘part of my family.’ For many I may address their emotional and spiritual energy side; which has been well studied by other cultures for over thousands of years. Although this may be outside the traditional Western medical practice it is within what my patients are benefiting from.

In order to truly heal I believe that a variety of options need to be available and I take pride in being able to develop my practice and myself to include these choices. In the spirit of being a human being and your Nurse Practitioner provider I believe each patient requires focused attention which includes the whole person; body, emotions, spirit, social and cultural components.

About Me

I am the founder of Affinity Medical, an independently owned and operated Nurse Practitioner medical office in Tempe, AZ. One of the true ‘secrets’ is that Nurse Practitioners are Primary Care Providers and provide some of the most advanced and satisfying care! My practice is a fusion between traditional medicine and nursing innovation. I hear and respond to your unique needs and tailor all treatment to you!

I specialize in Bio-Identical Hormone and thyroid replacement, for men and women, while offering services in preventative/sick care to adult patients. My passion for prevention on all levels makes me an outstanding educator and mentor. I have an intense post Nurse Practitioner school training in cardiovascular and thyroid health, which is implemented into my practice. Life is full, fun and fast; I am blessed with 4 children, 3 grandchildren, and I still find time to mentor Nurse Practitioner students!

Life long learning is my passion! Learning from other cultures and having the freedom to implement them into my practice is exciting. For example, being able to offer my patients energy healing (a 5000 year old philosophy). Come see me and learn how to tap into your energy!
