About me

As a doctor at Sanitas, I work with my team to treat my patients with the best care possible. We listen to patient concerns and do everything in our power to help make them feel better. A good day at work for me means that the clinic operated efficiently and there were no excessive wait times for any patients. Additionally, when our service to patients was above their expectations and the staff is fully engaged it has been a good day and leaves me excited about coming back tomorrow.  

I was born in Prentiss, Mississippi but grew up in Jackson, Mississippi. I have also recently lived in Los Angeles, California where much of my extended family currently resides. I have since relocated to  Nashville, Tennessee and I love the community and culture here. I decided to go into medicine because as a child I witnessed significant health disparities in my home state of Mississippi. This along with seeing the impact dedicated physicians can have on their communities caused me to enter the health care field and use all my effort continuing to make a difference in my community. I want you to know that at Sanitas serving you is the reason we are here, and you are never an interruption of our day. You will have our full healthcare knowledge and skills dedicated to improving your health. 

When I take off my coat, I love to go on long swims, I am a long-distance swimmer at heart. Additionally, I love to plant a small garden each year with my daughter and to spend time tending to the plants. Finally, I enjoy spending my free time active at our home church, the Cathedral of Praise COGIC.
