About Me

I am originally from the middle Georgia area and recently relocated from Atlanta with my husband to the southern coast of Georgia for the small-town atmosphere and coastal waters. We also like being close to Jacksonville for all it has to offer. I completed my master’s degree in Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner from Emory University, my bachelor’s degree in nursing from Marymount University, and my bachelor’s degree in Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Georgia.

My philosophy of patient care includes taking the time to listen to the patient and coordinating care with the patient, caregivers and other members of the care team to ensure optimal outcomes are achieved.
