A native of Memphis, Tennessee, I grew up in Ariton, a small town in southeast Alabama, where my father was the town’s only physician. Among my fondest childhood memories include accompanying my Dad on house calls and Saturday night hospital rounds, which also doubled as family outings. After completing residency training in Houston, Texas, I worked at a large multispecialty clinic caring for children from many different ethnic backgrounds. During my time as a Texan I was privileged to participate in several overseas medical missions trips, became a Houston Rockets and Astros fan, and most importantly, met my husband. In late 2001, closer proximity to family drew me home to Alabama, where I worked solo in medically underserved Russell County. This five year commitment was among the most challenging but rewarding experiences of my career. My husband (city boy) and I (country girl) eventually settled on Birmingham to call our home at which time I joined Simon-Williamson Clinic. My favorite part of working here is having the opportunity to provide care for children from all walks of life, developing relationships with them and their families as they grow, and being among a group of committed physicians who feel the same. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, dogs and cat, family and friends, my church, cooking, biking, and working in the yard.
