About me

I grew up in Grenada, West Indies and Brooklyn, N.Y. My mother, a pediatric nurse, worked with children who had chronic and congenital health conditions and encouraged our family to appreciate our good health. During my last year of high school, I was inspired to study nursing by a compassionate nurse who cared for an ill relative of mine. I attended New York University and developed an interest in health promotion and chronic disease prevention. Two years after graduating, I traveled to Cuba with an American health care team, which was led by a well-respected health activist pediatrician and decided to pursue a career in medicine. I completed my internal medicine training at Montefiore Medical Center and specialty training in adolescent medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. My husband, who is also a physician, loves climbing mountains, and I love being around water. Seattle has both, so we decided to stay there after we completed our fellowship training. Our two daughters were also born in Seattle. We moved to Atlanta in 2003 for my husband's job. In Atlanta, one of our favorite family rituals is hiking across the waterfall and around the lake in our neighborhood park.  

About my practice

The motto of my internal medicine residency program in New York was, "Make a difference." I have had the experience of practicing medicine in diverse settings, from a rural village in Liberia with scarce resources to Kaiser Permanente, where there is a wealth of resources. The greater part of my experience has been in providing direct patient care. I also served as the clinical site director for a Seattle community clinic for over 10 years, and participated in developing national health goals in my work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At Kaiser Permanente, I have colleagues, tools and resources that support providing high-quality care to our members and our community. I encourage our members to take advantage of the classes and services that are available to them, such as exercise, weight management and smoking cessation. We care for the individuals who come to us because of concerns or for treatment of acute or chronic health conditions. We also reach out to members to remind and inform them of care they should receive such as preventive health exams. I am glad to be part of an organization that strives to "make a difference" in the lives of our members, the community and the nation.  

How I thrive

I thrive when my family and patients thrive. I try to practice what I teach, although getting eight hours sleep is still a challenge! I do exercise three to four days a week, and I love cooking, reading, playing piano and hiking with my family. I try to stay connected with my family and friends, and I love playing Scrabble with my parents. Attending our daughters' dance and music performances brings me much joy. My husband and I enjoy walking our younger daughter to her piano lessons and we often stop to smell the roses in our neighbor's garden. We also volunteer for our daughter's school and extracurricular activities.
