From the Doctor:
I grew up in Mississippi and met my husband, an otolaryngologist at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, in medical school at University of Mississippi. We have three children, including twins, and a rescue dog. We are excited to settle down in Jacksonville after being stationed in Pensacola and San Diego.
I chose to practice oncology because I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level and because cancer is only part of their story. I also like to stay up to date on the latest cancer research and treatments. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, wine tasting and contributing to my community as a speaker or by volunteering at free clinics.
