About Me

I enjoy living in Jacksonville with my three children and husband who is a pilot for UPS Airlines and the Navy Reserve. My family enjoys traveling, going to the beach and playing sports during our free time.

My philosophy of care is to empower my patients with information so that together, we can decide which treatment plan best fits their lifestyle and goals.

I believe it is important to serve my community. During residency, I provided quality medical care to our homeless population as well as performed many school physicals for children with little access to care. I also served as a delegate to the Illinois State Medical Society House of Delegates to promote patient advocacy through policy.
