I am a Nurse Practitioner with 15 years of experience in Acute Care Nursing, Pain Management and Orthopedic Joint & Spine. I graduated from Florida State College at Jacksonville with my Associate Degree in Science and Nursing in 2007. I remained in Florida during my time as an RN primarily working in recovery for Post Open Heart and Thoracic Surgery. In 2014, I relocated to Atlanta, continuing my career in critical care and Orthopedic Surgery. To further my career and education, I attended Chamberlain College of Nursing where I earned my Bachelor of Science and Nursing, and my Master of Science and Nursing to follow, graduating in 2018. I began my career as a Nurse Practitioner in Functional/Regenerative Medicine and Pain Management with an integrative approach. I exhibit exceptional patient care and diligent in my pursuit of minimally invasive and holistic treatment for my patients. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and numerous outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, biking, and going to the beach.
