Medical Specialties & Interests: Primary Care; Family Medicine; LGBT Health
Work History & Leadership:
My clinical interests are in health promotion and chronic disease management. I like helping people understand what they can do to prevent illness and maintain health. I am also interested in managing the health of LGBT patients, providing PrEP and gender-affirming hormone therapy. I became interested in community health after working at a Federally Qualified Health Center throughout college, helping patients access community resources and apply for public benefits. Before becoming a FNP, I worked on a team researching the impact of radiation therapy on the microbiome of patients with cervical or endometrial cancer. During nursing school, I co-founded an organization that partnered patients who are frequently admitted to the hospital with students from different disciplines (medicine, nursing, social work, pharmacy, and law) to build healthy routines. I have also worked as a RN at iResearch Atlanta and International Gymnastics Camp.
Fun Facts: I enjoy running, reading, writing and cooking.
