About Me

I have enjoyed living in Jacksonville most of my life, having returned here with my husband and daughter in 1990. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor walks, listening to audiobooks, restorative yoga, swinging kettlebells, watching “The Voice” and throwing confetti!

My philosophy of care is patient-centered and involves a shared decision making approach. I believe in empowering and engaging patients to play a proactive role in the self-management of their health.
