I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I was born and raised in Atlanta, along with a long line of family members that still reside in the metropolitan area. However, having lived in one city most of my life, I have a keen fondness for traveling both throughout the United States and Europe. My husband shares the same "travel bug," and we spend our vacations exploring art museums, dining on wonderful meals and reading books or listening to podcasts. My choice to delve into professional medicine began in high school, and I have found it deeply rewarding. The intricacies of the human body are astounding, and the chance to keep learning never ceases. I previously had the opportunity to work as a registered nurse (RN) in a cardiac unit prior to pursuing my degree as a nurse practitioner, and I now share the unique privilege of joining Kaiser Permanente's Cardiology Department. I am a member of the Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society and am credentialed by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
About my practice
The cardiology team at Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing optimized care as well as a collaborative treatment approach to our members in need of heart treatment and evaluation. Our team effectively communicates to ensure that we maximize your health benefits and provide both a pleasant and productive experience during each visit.
How I thrive
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all, become passionate about it. Lukewarm is not good." - Roald Dahl Likewise, the maintenance of our health must also be passionately pursued to achieve our highest potential for wellbeing. My husband and I both fully support this outlook in our personal lives, as well. We strive to engage ourselves in our community through both active engagement in our local church and enjoying recreational activities in and around Atlanta's Piedmont Park and the Belt Line.
