I have an undergraduate degree in engineering from Vanderbilt University. I went to med school intending to pursue nuclear medicine but fell in love with taking care of women. I finished my residency in OB/GYN at the University of Tennessee i Memphis in 1983 and was board certified in 1985. I consider every child I ever delivered to be one of my own and take great pride in their accomplishments. I do a lot of hand sewing such as needle point and shocking to keep me busy while waiting for babies. I also admit to being a foodie and love cooking more than eatting. I don't know if there is such a thing but if so I could also be called a "plantie".I am an avid gardener. Of course, I love growing my own herbs but I also love native plants and wild flowers.
