My gender: Female
Where I practice
I was born in a small town in Jamaica, where I was raised by my grandparents and aunts. In my early teens, I moved to Boston, Mass. to join my parents. I was attracted to the medical field by observing one of my aunts, who was a nurse, during her interaction with her patients. I received my medical education at University of Massachusetts Medical School, and I moved to Georgia immediately after I completed my training. I was in private practice for about three years, after which I was privileged to join the Kaiser Permanente team in November 2012.
About my practice
I am a member of the Kaiser Permanente Ambulatory Medicine Department. As a team, our physicians, nurses and other staff are committed to listen, guide, manage and treat acute and chronic medical illnesses. This spans a wide spectrum of diagnoses from the common cold to diabetes. I believe you, our members, are the central part of the team and we are here to guide, support and educate you as you make important decisions about your health.
How I thrive
I believe action is the key. I enjoy cooking for my family, taking long walks in the evening and exercising a few times each week. My hobbies are reading, dancing and going on family vacations. I also make an effort to spend some time in meditation in the morning and at the end of the day. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and raising our seven children.
