Advanced Practice Providers

Nurse Practitioners (APRNs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) are an important part of the Baptist Health team and help us increase timely access to care.

You'll see these advanced practice providers caring for patients in a variety of medical specialties at doctor's offices, hospitals, outpatient centers and emergency rooms. They have advanced medical education and work closely with physicians to diagnose and treat patients, and even prescribe medication.

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.
