I entered medicine because of a desire to help others. I chose a specialty in Family Practice to provide quality care to patients and their families. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City and completed residency at Montgomery Family Medicine Residency Program. My family and I moved the Emerald Coast upon completion of my medical education where I continue to treat patients. I am a proud mother of five children and grandmother of one. I treat my patients like I would want my family and I to be treated when we are suffering. I am a strong advocate of medical marijuana use for the relief of suffering.
