About

Bio

Born in Louisville KY, I returned here to begin a family practice ultimately becoming an employee of Baptist Medical Associates whose philosophy of medical care most close to my own. I am married and the mother of two grown women. My medical interests include preventive care, technology in medicine, and women's health. I am particularly interested in social media and its use in the advancement of better patient care.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
