About

Bio

My path in medicine started in Johnson City, TN, where I graduated from East Tennessee State Univ. with an MD in 1998, then went to Tulane in New Orleans and trained to be an OB/GYN. I finished in July of 2002. Although I loved both of those wonderful universities, my heart will always belong to my undergraduate alma mater, the Va Tech Hokies! (BS 1988, MS, Nutrition 1991) Go Hokies! I've had the privilege of working in several areas of the country, but no matter the location or setting, I've always enjoyed learning from my patients about their past, where they are now, and where they hope to go. It's an honor to be an OB/Gyn.

Specialties
