  • Physician Assistant, Primary Care, Division of General and Community Pediatrics



I practice general pediatrics and primary care and believe the best way to care for patients is to practice empathetic listening. I recognize that the healthcare system can make people feel very vulnerable, so I want to be there with open ears.

I want patients and families to be a part of their care with shared decision-making so that everyone feels comfortable with their treatment plans. While I enjoy caring for all the needs of patients, I especially like discussing and focusing on preventative care and health promotion.

Being the second oldest of five children and having a large extended family, I’ve always been around children. In school, my interests were science and health promotion, so a career in pediatric medicine was a great blend of two of my passions. I was fortunate enough to have some great mentors along my career path who inspired me to deliver exceptional care.

During a portion of my physician assistant training and after graduating, I volunteered at a free clinic in a rural part of Eastern Kentucky. That experience fulfilled a passion of mine for caring for the medically underserved.

In my time off, I enjoy being active, hiking and baking.
