Bio

Dr. Becky attended medical school at the University of Iowa and then did her residency at Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa. After graduating, she was in solo practice in Oskaloosa, IA before moving to Newberry, South Carolina. She practices at Pediatrics of Newberry which is a site of Eau Claire Cooperative Health Centers. Being part of a federally qualified health center means that she and her fantastic staff can care for any child regardless of their insurance status. She enjoys gardening, reading and playing with her three children and wonderful husband, Jaime. Thanks to Jaime, she is also fluent in Spanish.
