About Me

I went to high school and college in Jacksonville and have spent my entire career as a neurologist here in Florida. My husband and I and our three children are excited to move back to Jacksonville, where we enjoy outdoor activities, including boating, kayaking, and fishing.

My approach to patient care is to make sure all of the patient’s concerns are heard and addressed. As a former educator, I feel it’s essential to make sure patients understand their diagnosis and the different aspects of their evaluation and treatment plan in order to manage their neurologic conditions.
