About me

I grew up in Alabama and attended undergraduate, graduate and medical school at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Prior to medical school, I did research in virology, studied business administration and public health, and taught aerobics. Based on my fascination with the brain and nervous system, I decided to study neurology early in my medical training. Having seen the effects of neurologic disorders in my family and friends, I was interested in helping people with these conditions. I have now lived in the Atlanta area for over five years and consider it home.

About my practice

I love getting to know our members and helping them understand and control their neurologic conditions so that they may have a better quality of life. I manage and treat patients with many neurological disorders, and my special area of interest is epilepsy. I find it extremely satisfying that with proper diagnosis and treatment it is possible to give someone who has been experiencing a poor quality of life (for example, due to undiagnosed or untreated seizures, strokes or headaches) the opportunity to work, drive and function in society and to get the most out of life. I am also interested in studying how neurologic conditions affect learning, memory and cognitive function.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with family, exercising, enjoying nature and the outdoors, listening to music, watching movies and reading. I also like to write stories, poems and song lyrics.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners 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.
