I grew up in a small town and during college worked as a nursing assistant at a rural
community hospital in Sweetwater, TN. I always wanted to become a doctor and dreamed of
practicing in a rural town like Sweetwater. I attended LMU DeBusk College of Osteopathic
Medicine, which allowed me to do many of my medical school rotations in rural areas. I fell
in love with the idea of family medicine with a special interest in women's health. During
my third year of medical school, my husband and I were blessed with our daughter, Lilli.
Being a mother is one of the greatest things I have ever experienced and family is extremely
important to me. My husband Joel and I enjoy spending time outside hiking and kayaking.
We are active in our church and have a dream of doing medical missions one day.
