I am a native of Atlanta, and I consider it a privilege to work in the Metro Atlanta area. I attended Brenau University in Gainesville, Ga. for my undergraduate degree and completed my master's degree in physician assistant studies at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011. I have been practicing medicine since 2011, and I previously worked in an urgent care environment before I began practicing in orthopedics. I began working with the Kaiser Permanente Orthopedics Department in 2015.
I am a physician assistant (PA) working in the Kaiser Permanente Orthopedics Department. I am fortunate to work in an excellent department staffed with outstanding people that make this an enjoyable place to spend my career. I was introduced to the physician assistant profession in college and became inspired by the relationships and care teams that formed between patients and practitioners. Philosophically, it is my goal to encourage our members to take an active role in their health care. I am a strong believer in patient education, and I believe it is very important to explain patients' conditions in a way that makes sense.
I thrive by staying active. I enjoy exercise, being outdoors with my dog and spending time with friends and family members.
