I grew up outside of Atlanta and have lived in Georgia from childhood through medical school. After graduation from medical school, I decided to explore opportunities outside of Georgia, so I went to the University of Chicago for residency. There, I initially studied both internal medicine and pediatrics. Afterwards, I worked as a hospitalist, but I then returned to training to specialize in hematology and oncology, which is where my heart has always been. After over eight years in Chicago, I returned to Georgia to be closer to family and for the warmer weather. I initially took a position as assistant professor at my alma mater, the Medical College of Georgia. I thoroughly enjoyed working in Augusta, but I am grateful for the opportunity to work at Kaiser Permanente in Atlanta with wonderful colleagues, as well as exploring my various interests in the Atlanta area.
About my practice
As an oncologist, my philosophy towards care involves treating the person as a whole, not just the medical issue at hand. I truly believe that the best care for our members involves working as a team, of which the patient is the most critical member. Our staff and resources work together to treat you with the most high-quality and compassionate care possible.
How I thrive
Kaiser Permanente strives for excellence in medical care, but also encourages our providers to maintain a strong work-life balance. I take this philosophy to heart and try to take time to "smell the roses." This involves spending time with my friends and family and enjoying life to the fullest.
