Growing up in Murfreesboro after moving from Brooklyn, I attended Vanderbilt University for biomedical engineering and medical school. I completed residency at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was honored to stay on as Chief Medical Resident. I had the privilege of caring for patients as an attending physician through Ann Arbor Veterans Hospital and Ann Arbor Homeless Shelter Clinic.
As a primary care doctor who takes a proactive, personal approach to medicine, I believe in empowering my patients with knowledge of their body and their diseases to help them be an active force of change in their own health and wellness. In addition to internal medicine, my special clinical interests include cardiovascular disease, preventive medicine and metabolic/endocrine disorders.
In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I bring a level of prevention based on clinically actionable assessments, and we use customized tools to help patients remain committed to improving their health. I believe knowledge is power.
I have been with Heritage Medical Associates since 2009 after practicing with Vanderbilt. I am affiliated with Ascension Healthcare system with St. Thomas and see patients from the Cool Springs area serving Franklin and Brentwood.
I enjoy woodturning, national parks adventures, dancing, hiking, gardening, any and all travel and creating stationery with my husband's photography. Most of all, I love spending time with my children and family.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
