Additional information:

Raised in TN, I came to Alaska when my husband was stationed at Joint-Base Elmendorf Richardson. We instantly fell in love with Alaska. We have recently deepened our Alaskan roots by purchasing a home, as our family of four is preparing to welcome our fifth crew member this fall. Three transplants and two native-born Alaskans 😊.

Pediatrics is my passion. I love pediatric education and providing the best care for your child is my one and only goal. Whether it is an emergent situation, or routine care, immunizations, and examinations. My practice is based on a patient and family-centered care, understanding that family is a child's primary source of support and strength.
