About me

My patients at Sanitas are treated like family—that’s how we see all our patients here. I spend time talking with and getting to know my patients, and determining the right education and information that can help improve their health. A good day at work means making a difference in my patients' lives through my service. It's a good feeling when I get a smile of "thanks" from a satisfied patient.

Growing up, I called Brentwood, Tennessee, home. I decided to go into medicine because I come from a long line of public servants and wanted to pass it on. My nursing career began as a flight nurse with Vanderbilt Life Flight. There I felt fueled by my passion to serve in times of crisis. For the past 23 years, I've been a family nurse practitioner for family practice and emergency medicine. I've been an assistant professor of nursing at the University of Tennessee and a preceptor for three other universities. I'm also on a federal disaster medical team that deploys for disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. It's a privilege to be "right there" for people in times of need.

When I take off my coat, I enjoy spending time with my four children and doing photography.
