Although I am originally from Michigan, my husband’s career has taken us all over the country. In 2010 we relocated to Johnson City and we love it. We have embraced East Tennessee as our home and hope to spend many more years here.

I am passionate about learning from and sharing knowledge with women. Each woman’s journey to health and wellness is unique. I aim to facilitate that journey by viewing each person that I work with holistically and attending to the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual factors affecting their health. I love working alongside patients to achieve their unique goals to improve function and their quality of life. In addition to prenatal and postpartum care, I have special interests in health, wellness and alleviating chronic pain.

My favorite pastime is spending time with my family. I have been married for 25 years and have four children and one daughter-in-law. I also love to travel, experience new things, be active in my church community, spend time with friends, read and continue to learn.
