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

When I am not working, I happily give my time to my family. I have a wonderful husband and two amazing small children. We enjoy day trips to explore historic St. Augustine, the zoo or the beach on the weekends.

I started my medical career working as a registered nurse in the hospital on an all-women’s oncology unit. Here I developed insight into the complex journey patients undergoing cancer treatment go through and decided to advance my career to help contribute to the mission of ending cancer.
