Kaiser Permanente medical center practitioner
My gender: Female
Yes, I’m accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
I am a native Atlantan, one of nine children. I have always been considered the "mother hen." Growing up, I gravitated toward the older members of my family. They just seemed to have so much wisdom and warmth. My husband of over 30 years continues to encourage and inspire me to be a better person just by his own actions and attitude. He still makes me laugh every single day! We also have two incredible children. They, along with my lovely niece, give my life meaning.
I consider it a privilege and an honor to work in health care. I completed my education at Georgia State University. I have worked as a health care professional for over 20 years. My experience as an advanced practice nurse has been in occupational health, minor acute care, adult medicine and geriatrics. The years spent in geriatrics have by far brought the greatest fulfillment to my work.
I chose to become a family nurse practitioner because I enjoy working with and caring for others. Throughout my years of practice, I have developed a passion for the middle aged to older adult. I strive to keep the patient first. I feel my role is to empower the patient to be an active participant in their health care. I believe that education, open discussion of options and resources will lead to prevention and improved outcomes. I am grateful to be a member of a team that shares my vision for improving the lives of our members.
I begin each day with devotion and exercise. I try each day to keep a positive attitude and to express gratitude for my blessings. I enjoy yoga, running and cycling. I participate in short charity runs around town. I thrive by spending time with family and friends. We enjoy food and entertaining, and our home is often the gathering place. I also enjoy reading, the arts, travel and baking.
