I am a 1980 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a proud member of the first class to include women. I served on active duty in the U.S. Navy for 7 years and then had the great opportunity to be a stay at home mom to my 2 children for several years. I graduated from Rush Medical College in 1995 and then did a Family Medicine Residency at Hinsdale Hospital in Hinsdale, IL which I finished in 1998. I practiced in Gulfport, MS for about 7 years until I moved to Navarre, FL where I have practiced since 2005. I am the owner and medical director of The Wellness Center at Navarre which houses a family practice clinic, medical spa and weight loss program. We incorporate both conventional and alternative medical treatments in our care of patients.
