About Me

I am originally from New Jersey but moved to North Carolina with my husband when he was stationed at Fort Bragg. My professional background includes working in the pediatric intensive care unit, pediatric emergency department, and the newborn nursery. I am excited to form lifelong relationships in the primary care setting. My approach in the clinic is both relaxed and attentive. I actively listen to my patients and their caregivers, paying close attention to detail. I want my patients and their family members to always know that I am here to help them in any way that I can, and I am their health care advocate. Given my background, I am particularly passionate about preventing childhood injury and trauma as these are the leading causes of death and injury in the pediatric population.
