I am originally from North Carolina. I graduated with a degree in Biology from Bucknell University. Then I worked in Washington, DC for a few years in healthcare technology marketing and sales before moving to New York City to complete my Master of Public Health at Columbia University. I then moved to Blacksburg, VA and completed my medical degree at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine. After medical school graduation, I completed my Family Medicine residency at Novant Health in Cornelius, NC. I met my husband while in medical school and we now have a beautiful daughter. In my spare time, I enjoy running, swimming, being outside and hanging out with family and friends. I learned more about Hospice and Palliative Medicine while in residency and was truly drawn to the field. I feel there is such a need in end of life care and those with terminal illness. I am excited to continue my medical educational journey in North Carolina at Wake Forest University!
