From the Doctor:
My Navy residency brought me to Naval Air Station Jacksonville from Virginia in 1994 and my husband and I stayed here to raise our three children. We love the beach and spending time outdoors.
I believe patients should play a very active role in their care and should work in partnership with their physician. Preventing illness is my primary goal for my patients and I use a variety of techniques to achieve this goal.
In our spare time, my husband and I volunteer at our daughters’ school. As a family, we are active in our church and neighborhood.
