  • Professional Experience

    My clinical experience started in Philadelphia, moved to Texas, and now is in South Carolina, where I still currently practice as a hospitalist PA and in a suboxone clinic.

    I have been on faculty with NGU since 2017.

  • My Network

    I work alongside a wonderful hospitalist team at St. Francis and also with a caring group of APPs at Cypress Center Clinic.

  • My Story

    Since graduation, I have practiced inpatient medicine, whether it be with a hospitalist team or surgical team. Since graduation, I also have had 4 children, which made the balance of late nights in the hospital and family life a bit strained. During my time during full-time clinical practice, I was able to precept pre-PA and nurse practitioner students. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to teach, but also see the students’ critical thinking evolve during their rotations. After over 10 years in full-time clinical practice, I joined NGU full time, but still work clinically inpatient and in a suboxone clinic. In other areas of life, I am a professional mom-van driver and like to run and cycle.

    Favorite course to teach: Pediatrics
