From the Doctor
After completing my pediatric residency at University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville I had hoped to return to the area. In 2013 I was excited to return to Jacksonville with my husband and beautiful daughter. We enjoy all of the different activities that the city has to offer such as the St. Johns River, beaches, and parks.
As your pediatrician, my goal is to promote healthy living, prevent disease and keep you in tip-top shape. In those times of sickness, I want to support your family and help you make important, sometimes tough, medical decisions. I believe my daughter has definitely enhanced my pediatric practice, giving me a new set of skills and understanding.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. One of the great things about living in Jacksonville is the opportunity to be outdoors year-round. As a family we enjoy water sports and swimming and any activity that brings us together to laugh, play, and appreciate life.
