About

Bio

Upon finishing residency, stayed on as faculty member until marriage into the Army life. After a short time working at an Urgent Treatment Center, we were moved and I began work with active duty dependents and retirees. I am especially interested in preventive care: specifically women and children and the overall health of an individual rather than just disease management. It is very rewarding to help people make changes in their lives that will help not only the length but quality of their lives!

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.
