From the Doctor:

I moved to Jacksonville in 2007 and have enjoyed it very much. My favorite past time is spending time with my husband and two children, especially outdoors.

My philosophy of care is to listen to children and their families and learn as much as I can about them. We have an obligation to help children grow and learn so they can become content and productive members of society.

Because of my belief in community involvement, I volunteer at psychiatric hospitals and departments, as well as, take calls for a children’s help-line. More recently, I have been volunteering at my children’s preschool.
