Rebecca makes sure I understand what is causing my problems, the best way to approach addressing the problems AND she asks for MY input. She is well aware of compliance issues and makes sure I am in on the plan. She often will look up something which reassures me because if she doesn't remember something off the of her head she checks. I appreciate that. (She knows a heck of a lot though!!)

Bio

What are your specialties and certifications?

FNP-BC, APRN, family practice specialty.

Is there any other notable training we should know about?

I worked with a weight loss program in the past and am passionate about using natural therapies and dietary interventions for weight management.

Why did you go into medicine? Why did you choose your particular field?

I had migraines as a child and always wanted to solve the problem of migraine headache. Fortunately, we have many more choices now than we did in the past to effectively treat migraine. Additionally, I love the connection with patients I get to develop over time. My goal in our clinic is to create an atmosphere of calm and peace to allow teaching and learning to be smooth and accessible. It is difficult to learn in a chaotic environment, so we do all we can to provide a calm environment.

What are some of your clinical interests?

I love to assist in weight loss, headache management, and to help people stay in the best health possible without medication whenever possible. My philosophy is as many medications as are necessary, but no more. I work with patients to reduce medication burden whenever clinically possible and healthy for that patient. Each medication or treatment decision is individualized for best patient benefit and consideration of patient choice and preference.

What do you love about practicing medicine?

I like to connect with patients and learn about their personal life goals and the things that are most important to them. From this perspective, managing chronic illness or maintaining chronic wellness become more personalized and effective for my patients and fulfilling for myself.

"My goal in our clinic is to create an atmosphere of calm and peace to allow teaching and learning to be smooth and accessible."

What is your philosophy of care?

We strive to create and maintain an environment of peace and calm as a cornerstone of care. I work to discover patient goals and what is most important to them as a foundation for treatment plans and educational strategies. I aim to treat conditions and problems not only for the patient but also consider the family and work systems, and changes in these that may affect personal health and illnes.

What do you most want people to know about the way you practice medicine?

I will do my best to personalize the care you receive and I pledge to give you all the information I can to help with decision making. I will stay as up to date as is possible with the current recommendations and scientific studies and consider your preferences as we determine the best plan for you.

What can your patients expect during an appointment?

Time, attention and personalization. I expect input regarding patient preferences, but will provide answers to questions that are asked.

What do you wish you could tell every patient (and they would actually do) and why?

Choose your foods carefully. Move your body everyday. Consider mindfulness practice. Curate intake of foods/drinks and information. Ask questions if you have them, don't rely on social media or the internet for health information, that is why we are here.

What have your patients taught you?

That people are amazing. I learn something from a tough, resilient, Montana patient every day.

Who is someone you admire, and why?

I love Betty Neuman's Systems theory and admire her thoughtfulness as she developed it. I use this philosophy daily. I appreciate Dr Wayne Jonas and his HOPE note approach to integrated care and strive to include his research and practice into mine. I admire every MDMH health care provider, physician, nurse and all the many others that make up our team that come to work every day and do what they do.

Where did you grow up?

Darby, Montana.

"I am an avid journaler which includes writing about my life, tracking my efficiencies, drawing, painting and pondering."

What brought you to the Bitterroot Valley?

My parents. Haha, I kid. What brought me back after college was the beauty and unique character of the area. It is a lot like a boomerang. Once you have lived in the Bitterroot, no where else feels quite like home.

What do you enjoy about living and working in a small community like ours?

I enjoy the connections, the friendly faces, help when you need it and watching the coming together of our communities whenever something happens to one of our own. If you live here, you belong to us. It is home.

Living in such a close-knit community, how do you create a successful work–life balance?

My work is fulfilling and I rarely feel unbalanced. When I do, I create space and time to regroup and reconnect with myself or good friends depending on the balance issue. I like to run (well... jog) and walk as well as practice yoga and mindfulness, all which keep me grounded and feeling balanced.

What are some of your non-professional interests and favorite hobbies?

I am an avid journaler which includes writing about my life, tracking my efficiencies, drawing, painting and pondering. I also enjoy running, especially with the run-walk-run group I belong to. I like to hike and be outdoors when the weather allows. Otherwise, hanging out with the family and dogs is about the best life I can imagine.

Is there anything about you that might surprise people?

I'm working on handstands... so far not a skill.

What would be your personal motto?

Be kind and cite your sources.

Do you have pets?

Yes, two dogs.
