About me

As the daughter of two amazing artists who were also elite educators and incredible people, I am a very well-rounded human being, with a passion for living life to the fullest. I have always wanted to be a physician, but my family made certain that I pursued all of my interests from the time that I was young. I love art, culture and science, and I am in constant awe of what the human body is capable of. I chose the practice of medicine as a profession because it is the perfect combination of art and science, and healing is something that I am passionate about.

I was born and raised in one of the best cities on earth, Washington, D.C. I have also lived in Philadelphia, Penn. and Nashville, Tenn., and ultimately settled here in Atlanta in 2013. I am a mother, an artist, a scientist and I thoroughly enjoy my job as a physician.

About my practice

Well-being is a state of balance between the various aspects of health and it is a dynamic concept. I am an avid believer in the power of food and exercise in the maintenance of health and in healing. Generally speaking, when there is a need for medications, they are meant to augment a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, lifestyle modifications are often at the top of my list of prescriptions. When diet and physical activity are not a priority, the body cannot function optimally. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to medicine and I believe in empowering people with information as often as possible.

How I thrive

I most enjoy spending time with my family, both immediate and extended. I spend a lot of time with friends and family, simply enjoying each other's company. I do a considerable amount of community service and I enjoy cooking, dancing, sewing, watching movies and reading.

The information in this online directory is updated periodically. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. Before receiving care at a facility, select that location in our directory and verify the accepted plan types under "About this facility" to make sure it is available in your plan. If no plan types are listed, the facility is available for all plan types.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select providers and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Information about a provider is provided to us by the provider or the provider's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. Board certification may not reflect contracted services available from providers listed in our directory. If you have questions regarding this or about any of our providers, call us at 1-800-611-1811 (toll free). For the hearing and speech impaired: 1-888-865-5813 or 711 (TTY).
