Department of Family Medicine
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
I am from Farmington Hills, Michigan, and attended the University of Michigan before I traded allegiances to Michigan State University for Osteopathic Medical School. I love family medicine because of its diversity and our ability to build long lasting relationships with patients, which fosters optimum care. My interests are in pediatrics, preventive care and obesity management within the spectrum of family practice. Prior to joining SEAHEC, I served as the Osteopathic Director of Medical Education for the Duke Family Medicine Residency through Southern Regional Area Health Education Center located in Fayetteville, NC.
I moved to Wilmington after visiting my mother who has lived in the area for 15 years and loves it.
My husband and I enjoy traveling within North Carolina as well as visiting the beautiful local beaches here in the Cape Fear region. As the newest member of the Family Medicine Residency Program, I look forward to a wonderful collaborative relationship between New Hanover Regional Medical Center, SEAHEC and Coastal Family Medicine. I would like to work towards further strengthening the Family Medicine Residency and putting us at the forefront of medical change. The ability to encourage growth and flexibility is what our medical students find so appealing about our program, not to mention, that we graduate stellar Family Physicians!
