I have worked as a Physician Assistant since graduating college in 1997. I immediately started in practice at Sparta in Family Practice with Dr. Drake. I came to work here to compliment Dr. Drake with the emphasis on having a female practitioner in this location. Although my scope of practice covers from birth to geriatrics, my overall passion is pediatrics.
I have also worked for Team Health as an Emergency room physician assistant at Cumberland Medical Center since 2007. I am a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants since 1997.
In October 2015, I married the most amazing man, Colby. He works for the Tennessee Highway Patrol and serves in the Upper Cumberland area. I taught martial arts for years and love to work out and ride motorcycles. I attend the River Sparta Church and I have two fur babies, a Dutch shepherd, Meka and a German shepherd, Kaja. They rule my house.
I love caring for my home town and I cannot wait for many more years to serve my community.
