I was born and raised in Auburn, New York as the fourth of six children. My desire to practice medicine was always strong due to the tremendous amount of time I spent hospitalized as a child. I completed my undergraduate curriculum at Hamilton College in New York where I played field hockey. I later spent time researching and earning a Masters at Northern Illinois University. After deciding that I was destined for more than a laboratory, I went to University of Illinois College of Medicine to earn my Medical Degree. I am presently the owner and practicing physician of Anointed Hands Medical Services. I am also the wife of Kenneth O'Neal M.D. and a mother of three.
