I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I grew up in Paris, Tenn., which is home of the World's Biggest Fish Fry. I moved to Alabama to attend college and play basketball at Birmingham-Southern College. Afterwards, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham and received my master's degree in nursing in acute and primary care pediatrics.
I am a blessed wife and a mother to a very active little boy. My family is my daily reminder of how priceless life is, which makes me strive to make the best of everything. I love challenges because that is what makes me a better person and a better health care provider.
About my practice
I chose to become a pediatric nurse practitioner because not only do I love interacting with children, but childhood is such a crucial time for growth and development. I am honored and thrilled to be able to help parents and children make the best decisions about their health care needs. I strive to make sure my practice is a setting where children are at ease and to provide an open discussion environment.
How I thrive
The precious moments spent with my family give my life meaning. My greatest blessing in life is my son. I am an outdoor fanatic and I love football (Go Vols!). I enjoy traveling, fishing, hiking and just playing in the mud. Sunshine and a good laugh is my favorite way to cope with the daily stressors of life.
