From the Doctor:

Prior to my medical career, I co-captained the Dartmouth Women’s Basketball program to an appearance in the NCAA tournament. Following my athletic career I returned to my home state of Kentucky to pursue a medical degree at the University of Louisville. As a third year student it became very clear that Endocrinology was my passion.

During residency at Wake Forest University, I had the honor of being selected by faculty to serve as Chief Resident and a member of the prestigious medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. During my fellowship training at the University of Virginia, I conducted research and published articles in Endocrine News and Hypertension. Currently, I still participate in academia as I co-write “The Thyroid” chapter of the Sabiston Textbook of Surgery.

A desire to live in a warm climate near the beach led me to Jacksonville where I have five years of private practice experience. Outside the office my husband, who is also a physician, and I, cherish time with our four children. As a family we are committed to staying fit and eating a healthy diet.
