I was born in Austin, Texas but raised three hours north, up the I-35 corridor in Dallas. While attending Highland Park High School, I ran cross country and upon graduation majored in psychology at the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs! Texas called me back home to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. After obtaining a master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from The University of North Texas Health Science Center, I completed my Doctorate of Medicine at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. Choosing family medicine as my specialty was an easy decision because I value building relationships with patients and their families. In addition, I have found it extremely rewarding in caring for patients of all ages, infants to the elderly. I completed my extensive training with the Conroe Medical Education Foundation in affiliation with the Lone Star Family Health Center. The current fee-for-service, insurance based model of medicine prevents me from practicing medicine as I have always dreamed and therefore is my reason for joining the Direct Primary Care movement. This DPC model is just as my Papa practiced medicine 40 years ago, with a leather doctor’s bag and a big heart for his patients. I hope to return primary care to its roots of purity with a direct, uninterrupted relationship between doctor and patient.
While not practicing medicine, I enjoy traveling, scuba diving, wake-surfing, and cooking with my wonderful husband, Austin and rambunctious yellow Lab, Remy. I’m also a blessed parishioner of Saint Mary’s Catholic Church. I look forward to having the opportunity to spend time with you and your family and I am excited to be a true Advocate for your health.
