Education: Arizona State University
I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. Everyone in my family is a doctor so I grew up living and breathing healthcare. I owned my own practice in Georgia, but when I came to Arizona and learned about Mountain Park Health Center, I fell in love with their integrated healthcare model.
I want to be able to provide a medical home for my patients. I like to get to know the whole family. In pediatrics, it’s important to be familiar with every aspect of my patients’ lives because everything affects children.
I’ve learned so much from being in healthcare and I know there is still so much more to learn. I learn every day, especially from my patient’s parents. It’s really humbling.
When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking, gardening, and spending time with my husband and our son.
