About me

I am originally from Birmingham, Ala., where I also completed my medical school training at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). I initially chose to practice medicine after observing a family member directly impacted by cancer. Through this experience, I not only learned about the cutting edge field of oncology, but also gained an appreciation for empathy in our time of need. Our oncologist truly gave us hope, support, thorough information and endless compassion. To this day, he has continued to touch our lives. I want to be there for my patients in the same way that he was for our family. 

After being away for six years in Los Angeles, my husband and I decided to move back to the South to be closer to family and friends. I am excited to explore Atlanta and call it home.

About my practice

In my training, I have learned that a great hematology/oncology practice is one focused on patient-centered care with an emphasis on compassion, good diagnostics information and the patient-doctor relationship. It also involves practicing the latest evidence based therapies to significantly improve the quality of life of our members. I want to continue to achieve all of these important aspects to help our members live their lives and stay active in their communities. 

I learned through my clinical oncology research background that we are making strides every day in the lab, clinical trials and on the front lines of treatment. It is an ever-changing field in which we as providers are guides during a very difficult time in people's lives. I feel privileged to have this opportunity and strive to advocate for each of my patients.

I am also a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

How I thrive

I thrive as an avid long distance runner with a new interest in cycle spinning. I enjoy photography, including making detailed family photobooks. I love food and trying new cuisines - and I almost never skip dessert!
