I am a family physician, wife, mom and veteran. I have been practicing medicine since 1999 when I received my M.D. in Bethesda, Maryland. I enjoy the full spectrum of family medicine to include care for younger and older adults, teens, children and infants. I enjoy men’s and women's health, gynecology, acute care, sports medicine, behavioral health and office procedures (from stitches to joint injections). I have special interests and experience in adolescent medicine, contraceptive procedures (to include IUDs and implants), and HIV medicine.
I served as a physician in the USAF for nine years, practicing outpatient, hospital, obstetric, emergency and deployed medicine during that time. I was also on the teaching faculty at Eglin AFB Family Medicine Residency and at the Uniformed Services University's School of Medicine. After separating from the Air Force, I continued practicing medicine in varied settings as I followed my husband from state to state until his own retirement from the USAF in 2015.
