About Me

I have lived in Jacksonville since my dad's Navy career moved us here when I was a toddler. I live with my husband and three children in Fleming Island and we enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors; walking, biking and swimming. When I am not at work, you will find me volunteering at school, church and with youth organizations alongside the children.

As a busy working mom, I can relate to families trying to keep kids healthy while balancing school and extracurricular activities. I enjoy educating families on preventative care, especially healthy eating, activity and immunizations. I enjoy practicing at all of the Orange Park Pediatrics locations in Orange Park, Argyle Forest and Baptist Clay.
