About

Bio

I grew up in NC and went to college and medical school there. I chose to go to Florida for residency and loved it so much I stayed for 9 more years. We ended up in Tennessee and absolutely love the seasons. I am the proud mom of 2 boys that keep me very busy. We love to do anything outdoors and try to go to the mountains as much as we can.
