About Me

My family and I moved to Jacksonville from North Carolina in late 2018. My husband and I have two young children and a puppy and we enjoy spending time at the various beaches and bike and hiking trails in Northeast Florida.

As the electrophysiologist, I see patients with life-threatening arrhythmias. What I enjoy the best about my job is that many conditions I treat are permanently reversible and patients go on to lead healthy and happy lives.

Being an advocate for my patients, listening to and understanding their concerns and formulating a plan that is individualized to them are my guiding principles for care. I believe in treating all patients as if they were one of my own family.
