THREE FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

  1. Faith is something that is very important to me, and I enjoy going to church on the weekends.
  2.  I am the middle child of two sisters and grew up in Virginia Beach, VA. I love going back to Virginia to visit my family and the beach.
  3. I am a huge sports fan, especially basketball and football.  My teams are the Dallas Cowboys and of course the UVA Cavaliers since I am a “Double Hoo”.  I also love puzzles of ALL kinds and do a crossword every day and almost always have a jigsaw going.  Disney puzzles are my favorite!

WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR JOB?

I have always loved working with kids and spent high school and college summers working all kinds of summer camps before I become a pediatrician.
