A refreshing alternative to conventional cookie-cutter healthcare.
My approach starts with an in-depth evaluation of your past and current medical history, coupled with selected advanced testing, to discover the root causes of your condition and symptoms. Together, we then craft an actionable plan leading to lasting transformation.
You were designed to live an abundant life. There is no need to settle for less.
Cheerleader. Defender. Interpreter. Watchdog. I take my job seriously, and I’m not about to let you become just another statistic in the shuffle of conventional medicine.
The key to long-term wellness is learning to become your own best healthcare advocate. I would be honored to be your mentor.
Every trip needs a road map and an itinerary, and so it is with the journey to optimal health. Creating a plan that works for YOU is the key to success.
I graduated from Duke University with a BS in Cellular Biology and a Medical Doctorate degree. After eight more years of advanced training, I moved to the Tampa Bay area of Florida where I practiced 26 years as a diagnostic radiologist. Initially, my focus was Interventional Radiology, but in the early 1990s, I turned to address the needs of women facing the possibility of breast cancer. I spent my time building the first patient-centered breast cancer detection service in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and working with the non-profit sector to address the needs of under-insured women facing breast cancer. After retiring from medicine in 2013, I re-discovered my absolute love of the medicine and began my training as a Functional Medicine physician. I am in the process of completing full accreditation in this field.
The Lord gifted me with husband Jim almost twenty years ago, and we love being part of the lives of our mutual three children, two sons-in-law, and eight grandchildren. I try daily to fulfill my service to God, optimize personal wellness, and experience daily joy.
