Where I practice
I was born in the Bronx, NY, and raised in Long Island, NY. I have known that I wanted to be a pediatrician since I was nine years old because I have always loved helping children. I come from a large, multicultural family and have 14 siblings, many of whom I helped raise. Therefore, caring for children comes naturally!Prior to moving to Georgia, I had was in private practice in South Carolina for three years. My husband, two sons and I will often be spotted at the Gwinnett Braves games, playing sports at Collins Hill Park or catching a jazz concert at Suwanee Town Center. Our family also includes our black Labrador, Onyx.
About my practice
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2007, and am proud and honored to work among such an amazing group of caring, competent physicians. I have been at the Sugar Hill-Buford Medical Center since its opening in 2007 and currently serve as the managing physician for this facility as well as our Forsyth Medical Office.I have been very fortunate to have a wonderful group of patients and families, many of whom I have gotten to know outside of the office as well. I believe that parents know their children best, so I will partner with you in the care of your child to help ensure their well-being. I will be sure to communicate well with you and involve you in some of the decision making regarding your child's care.
How I thrive
My philosophy to life, as well as medicine, is caring for the whole person. I consider mental and spiritual health just as important, if not more so, as physical health. I am an active church member and volunteer every other Sunday in the youth ministry. I believe in the health benefits of philanthropy and find that I thrive best when I am helping other people, and I find various ways in my community to give back. I also believe in the healing power of music and laughter, so there is never a dull moment in my house! My family loves to play, laugh, dance, sing (even though we are all tone deaf) and stay active outdoors. Lastly, I firmly believe in the healing power of a “girls’ night out,” and I try to get these on a regular basis.My interests are dancing, reading, traveling, and anything that includes my loved ones. I am semi-interested in sports and have been made an honorary fan of the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys by way of my husband (sorry, Atlantans...I married into this so don't judge me too harshly). However, I am the biggest fan of my two All-Star sons!
