About me

I am a native Floridian who moved to Atlanta in 1989 to attend the graduate physician assistant program at Emory University. However, my interest in medicine began far before then. I became interested in medicine in high school, and my desire to work in the medical field continued through college. While working towards a biology degree at University of South Florida, I volunteered as an athletic trainer. This gave me my first hands-on experience treating patients. Sports have always played an important role in my life. I was a competitive swimmer, tri-athlete and cyclist in my youth. My extracurricular activities now involve my husband and twin boys. We love camping, traveling, hiking and mountain biking.

About my practice

I have been a physician assistant for over 20 years, practicing mostly in internal medicine and dermatology. I love getting to know our members and have learned that good communication between a provider and patient is an essential part of delivering excellent care. I feel strongly about educating our members, and I spend extra time explaining their condition and treatment plan. It is the same attention to detail I would want for myself or my family. Dermatology is a fascinating specialty and allows me to see members of all ages with a variety of conditions. I consider myself fortunate as I am able to work with some of the best dermatologists in Atlanta. I have achieved diplomat status as a dermatology PA and am also the director-at-large for the Georgia Dermatology Physician Assistants.

How I thrive

I like to stay active and it is rare to find me sitting around the house. Mountain biking and tennis are the sports I participate in most often. Recently, I took four years off of work to sail across the Pacific Ocean with my husband and twin boys. It was an opportunity of a lifetime to be able to spend such quality time with my family and see such amazing places!
