I grew up in Ohio, received my BS from Otterbein University and graduated from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2007.

My husband and I have 3 boys under the age of 5 and currently live in Hixson. I'm interested in integrative medicine and hope to practice here in Cahttanooga. We love boating, waterskiing, the Aquarium, Coolidge Park and Taco Mamacita.
