Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Jeans loves to travel – especially if it involves hiking, skiing, and scuba diving. She also enjoys spending time with her family and baking.

Fun Facts

Dr. Jeans says the best advice she’s received is to “do something you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” Her favorite book is the Harry Potter series. Her guilty pleasure is ice cream, which she eats almost every day. As a kid, she wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up because she loves animals.

​I believe that when patients are well educated about their diseases, they have the ability to participate in their care and make the best decisions for themselves. I like to treat my patients as I would treat my own family and work together to make them feel the best they can.
