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 LGBT 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.

If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
