WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I enjoy providing care throughout all of life's journey including newborns, adolescents, pregnant women and elderly.  I have a special interest in working with minorities, including the LGBTQ population, to decrease health disparities. I am from Florida and went to the University of Florida for my bachelor's degree. I love working with families on prevention of disease. I am very close to my family and though they are far away, I am reminded of my biological family and their struggles everyday in my life helping patients.  I enjoy working to help communities live healthier and the group model for patient visits.
