Hi there, I'm Michelle. I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I was born and raised in the Philippines but pursued my medical studies here in the United States. I received my Bachelors Degree from Washington State University and Masters Degree from California State University. Before working as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I have worked as a Registered Nurse for over 8 years in various hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. I have worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner in primary care, pediatrics, women's health, urgent care, medical weight loss, and aesthetics. I personally love treating my patients as a whole, including their families, as well as understanding their culture, as I believe that these factors have a huge impact on their health. I value the importance of increasing access to care and modifying risk factors for disease prevention. In my free time, I love dancing alone in our living room, using the Peloton treadmill/bike, and spending quality time with my husband and our kids. I would love to meet you soon and help you prioritize your health!
