Growing up in a small town in Mississippi helped me realize the importance of great, caring doctors. We only had a few doctors in my town, and the majority of health care needs required a drive to a larger, neighboring town. I felt the call to practice medicine during my high school years, seeing both sides of my family riddled by heart disease and other medical challenges. I wanted to dive right into the medical profession to help find answers on how to keep my family healthy. Knowing that I was a hands-on, procedure-oriented person, Ob/Gyn certainly seemed the right niche for my talents when I was in medical school. The first baby I delivered was an experience I will never forget, and one that still excites me each and every time I participate in bringing a life into the world.
After a brief stint in private practice in Rome, Ga., I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2001. My desire to participate in the administrative side of medicine became a reality for me with Kaiser Permanente. I have held several roles in our organization including physician team leader for the Ob/Gyn department at TownPark, managing physician at TownPark, Cumberland and West Cobb and chief of Ob/Gyn. I currently serve as assistant to the medical director for external relations.I also participate as a national physician market leader on our national account teams, helping bring about a greater understanding of our unique integrated model of health care to companies and health care executives across the country. I still enjoy seeing new and established patients at our TownPark office, and I am on our Northside Hospital Ob/Gyn labor and delivery team. My specific clinical interests include women's preventive health, family planning and contraceptive health.
To truly "thrive" requires a balance of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual entities. I like to strike that balance by hiking and rafting in North Georgia and other parts of the U.S. and by traveling internationally to experience how other cultures live. I also enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends and participating locally in March of Dimes and Habitat for Humanity efforts.
